    All the jazz greats are on this entire soundtrack album.

    Old & New talent.

    A collection of jazz works performed and dedicated to a common theme is too rare these days. Individual artists have taken on Disney tunes before, but in this album, we hear some jazz greats, on separate tracks, including Dave Brubeck, Diane Reeves, Joshua Redman, Esperanza Spalding, Regina Carter, Roy Hargrove, and Roberta Gambarini. The arrangement by Spalding of Chim-Chim Cher-ee is extraordinary, and Alfredo Rodriques does some creative piano work on the Bare Necessities. We also hear the guitars of Kurt Rosenwinkel and Gilad Hekselman. The title says "Vol. 1"; will there be a Volume 2? These musicians did record other tunes to take advantage of this unique opportunity (Brubeck recorded a total of four); hence, if sales warrant, there should indeed be a follow-up album. So, spread the word! This is a very fine album that takes some familiar and not so common Disney (that corporate umbrella covers Pixar, too) melodies and makes them new.

    Walt Disney also adored and had many collaborations with Louie Armstrong from the begging of both their careers. The leader of the Camelia Brass Band, D'Jalma Ganier, taught Louis Armstrong to play trumpet.

    You really answered your own ? It is all big band swing that would include all artists from that era of Ragtime, Jazz, Swing & The music of New Orleans Basin Street Dixieland. Satchmo, Buddy Bolden. Goodman, Glen Miller, the Dorsey Brothers, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke, King Oliver, Artie Shaw, Cab Calloway, Fletcher Henderson, Earl Hines, Lester Young... the list goes on.

    Sound like a jazz combo not a big band. With the clarinet featured you could associate it with Dixieland. Closest thing artist wise, film director Woody Allen.
