On Nov. 18, Verve will release Jazz Loves Disney, a 13-track album of classic Disney tunes from Cinderella, Lady and the Tramp, the Jungle Book and more that have been "given the big-band jazz treatment," according to a press release. The album, which "celebrates classic Disney magic and Walt Disney's love for jazz," was recorded between Paris, London and Los Angeles, and features such artists as Gregory Porter, Melody Gardot, Stacey Kent, Jamie Cullum and the Hot Sardines, among others.

Highlights of Jazz Loves Disney, produced by Jay Newland and arranged and directed by Rob Mounsey, include Gregory Porter singing "When You Wish Upon a Star," Jamie Cullum singing "Everybody Wants to Be a Cat," "He's a Tramp" with Melody Gardot and Stacey Kent, who puts a bossa nova spin on "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo."
