This week, we’re going to Disney World. Beginning in the late 1930s, many of America’s best songwriters began to work for the “House of Mouse.” Songwriters like Sammy Cahn, Ned Washington, Peggy Lee, and more all wrote music for Disney films. And great musicians, like Benny Goodman, Dinah Shore, Bing Crosby, and Peggy Lee, all contributed their voices to those same animated features. On this episode, we’ll explore further the connection between jazz and Disney, including classic and modern jazz interpretations of iconic Disney songs.
