In 2013, Verve Records started a series of popular artists covering Disney songs on albums called "We Love Disney," which inspired an American release in 2015. A genre-specific spin-off, Jazz Loves Disney released its first installment last year and the tradition continues with the latest release, Jazz Loves Disney 2 - A Kind of Magic. Get ready to snap your fingers to some of the jazziest renditions of Disney classics you've ever heard.

From the percussive beginning of Babel Gilberto's take on "Beauty and the Beast," I was hooked. Her smooth voice carries this love song away from a waltz and towards a more bossa nova style. It's the first of many tracks that will redefine jazz for Disney fans who are maybe less knowledgeable on the diverse styles of jazz that exist. Jacob Collier's version of "Under the Sea" also also a fusion of styles and doesn't instantly call jazz to mind. George Benson is a jazz guitarist who provides a guitar version of "You'll Be in My Heart" that also adds diversity to the jazz styles presented.
