Jazz Loves Disney - Jazz Weekly review

Bookmark and Share

Besides being known as "The Happiest Place on Earth," Disney is now trying to be "The  Hippest Place on Earth" with a number of their best known songs being delivered by today's artists. The width and breath of the artists makes this a fun fest, with each artist displaying unique charms and interpretations. Jamie Cullum is hep on "Everybody Wants to Be A Cat" and the Hot Sardines go bohemia during "I Wanna Be Like You." Melody Gardot gets a couple of nods, a peppy swing era duet with Raphael Gualazzi on "The Bare Necessities" as well as a slinky work with piano and bass on "He's A Tramp.' Some true bohemia is delivered by Stacey Kent as she coos in French to a delicious samba on "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo" while a soulful strut by Gregory Porter is delivered on a richly textured "When You Wish Upon A Star." When it comes to jazz, it is a small world, after all!
