I love a great Disney album. In fact that’s about all we listen to in our car these days. Everyone in the family loves the music, knows the words, and the songs bring back such wonderful memories from past trips to Disney parks or movies we’ve seen. The album Jazz Loves Disney is no exception. From the moment I listened, I was in love. The songs are beautifully done and have an authentic jazzy feel to them.
My favorite songs on the album were definitely Everybody Wants to be a Cat from The Aristocats and He’s a Tramp from Lady and the Tramp. I thought these sounded most like the original but with a great jazz sound. While I appreciated all the tracks, these stood out as my favorite. All the songs found on the album are:
2. Melody Gardot – “He’s A Tramp” – from Lady And The Tramp
