As a child growing up Disney always played a big part in my life. I loved watching Disney movies. I would pretend to be a princess, dress up and dance around to my favorite Disney songs. It seems like just yesterday that I was singing to the moon and stars - "When You Wish Upon A Star".
Now, as a mother, I am reliving those days through the eyes of my own children. Every since we received a digital copy of the album Jazz Loves Disney, we listen to it daily on the way to and from school. We really love the fact that the album is a mix of classic and new Disney. There is just something about the songs that you can's help but sing along. I think that's something most people can agree on, we all have our favorite Disney song and character. The smooth calming sound of jazz is a welcome addition to these songs. It is a delightful spin on the songs we all know and love.
This is my daughter dressed as the one and only Cruella Deville. This year our school did all things Disney for homecoming week.

"I’m lucky to be part of this beautiful album and honored to share it with artists I have admired for many years. Jazz represents a huge part of my musical path where I keep returning. Disney marked my childhood, like most children, but as an adult I still have a great taste for fairytales and imaginary. Being able to combine both in one album is fun and inspiring. The cherry on the cake was to revisit “let It go” which has been such a success the last few years. It’s a great way to discover those famous tracks and add fantasy and jazz to it. I’m proud to be part of it.”
The Disney movie which affected me the most probably was the Aristocats, that movie was the first time I heard Jazz as a little kid, and I just remember loving the music so much, it was not the most popular movie when I was young but still my favorite one.
“Someday My Prince Will Come” comes from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, I love that movie so much, all the different personalities…"
