The second installment of the Jazz Loves Disney series, Jazz Loves Disney 2: A Kind of Magic features guest artists including Angélique Kidjo, Laura Mvula, Jamie Cullum, Jacob Collier, George Benson, Madeleine Peyroux and more, taking on beloved melodies from the Disney canon. The album will be released on Verve Records on November 10.  

The Jazz Loves Disney series celebrates the nostalgia and universal appeal of the music of Disney films. The rich catalogue of Disney songs that span genres and generations inspired producer Jay Newland and arranger Rob Mounsey to continue the series. 

The album opens with the famous theme from Beauty and the Beast  "Tale As Old As Time," which gets a bossa nova makeover thanks to Brazilian singer Bebel Gilberto, daughter of the brilliant singer-songwriter and guitarist Joao Gilberto. Beloved jazz vocalist Jamie Cullum and international soccer star Eric Cantona form an unlikely pair with their theatrical reading of Beauty and the Beast's "Be Our Guest."  

Grammy-award winning singer/multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier, who rose to fame last year, takes on The Little Mermaid's "Under The Sea" with an electric-jazz flare. Angélique Kidjo gives us a taste of 21st century Disney magic with Zootopia's "Try Everything," originally sung by Shakira and Laura Mvula gifts her voice to Mary Poppin's beloved lullaby "Stay Awake," made immortal by Julie Andrews. 

The full lineup is below, with gorgeous melodies transformed by some of the jazz world's most intriguing musicians and vocalists.
