This is a sponsored post from Disney Music and One2One Network. All opinions are always my own. I truly enjoyed Jazz Loves Disney!There’s something about the music from Disney movies that just makes your heart happy. It had never occurred to me before how much Disney music is Jazz, or influenced by it. Sitting here listening to Jazz Loves Disney is so incredibly relaxing. Such an awesome collection of songs redone into a jazz sound! It definitely is a happy mellow I’ve got going on! It’s awesome that the kids love it too, since it makes them think of their favorite Disney movies! There is so much talent compiled on this one disc! I honestly could not say it better than the quote on the Amazon album description:
Jazz Loves Disney was recorded between Paris, London and Los Angeles by a dream cast. It is incredibly coherent, as if all participants had agreed to pay a rightful tribute to the most beautiful and symbolic tunes of Walt Disney’s magic world, as if nothing was too good for the stars when they revisited the classics and the sweet childhood memories connected to them.
Available November 18, 2016, Disney Loves Jazz is a must have for your music collection. Inspiration, relaxation and a great new way to introduce the little ones to Jazz! I love that you can even order it on Vinyl! Just trust me, this one is one you will want to listen to over and over again!
I love the French version of Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo performed by Stacy Kent. Her voice is amazingly smooth and the words in French seem so beautiful to me! French is the language of love for a reason, but I think the beauty in it is the most ‘love’ one can find! The Bare Necessities is so much fun too! It already had it’s own jazz feeling and these artists put it over the top! They had me moving as I listen to Jazz Loves Disney!
