From young, to old, no matter what your age, Disney music is something that holds a special place in so many hearts. Disney music has always been special to me. From a young child, listening to the songs while watching the movies, to the special sing a longs, and now as an adult. There are certain songs that I find myself thinking of and singing often. My family also feels the same. We find ourselves spending time together discussing our favorite Disney songs from so many classic movies. Disney music brings people together from all over the world.
Disney Loves Jazz is such a great spin on so many of our favorites, turning it into something new. While listening to the album, all those old memories came back instantly, putting a smile on our face. It is such a beautiful album.
The album was recorded by so many talented artists and was recorded between London, Paris, and Los Angeles. Jay Newland produced the album and it was arranged and directed by Rob Mounsey.
We loved the album. Check out 2 of our favorites:
Greg Porter – “When You Wish Upon A Star”– from Pinocchio
“I’m singing “When You Wish Upon A Star, one of the most iconic Disney song. It’s one of these iconic songs which have always been a part of the fabric of your life. I write songs that have a positive message & this one has a positive message, it says think higher/ greater, than your current situation for something better” – Greg Porter
Why We Love it – This song has always been a favorite. The music and lyrics always mean so much to us. Our favorite lyric from the song is When you wish upon a star Your dreams come true. It always makes us want to take a chance and pursue our dreams! Greg Porter’s voice in this song is perfection.
Hugh Coltman – “You’ve Got a Friend In Me”– from Toy Story
“Having kids who are Toy Story fans and being a fan of Randy Newman, the song choice was really simple for me.” – Hugh Coltman
Why We Love it – This has always been another one of our favorite songs and is from one of our favorite movies. This is a special song to us for so many reasons, especially that it reminds of all the amazing people in our life. We love Hugh’s rendition of the song. The song is very up beat, loud, and exciting. We love the big band feel behind the song.
