Musicians have been interpreting songs from Disney films forever, but the recent Everybody Wants to Be A Cat: Disney Jazz Volume 1 is the hippest to come out in a while, blending old and newer songs, young and veteran players. The impressive lineup includes Roy Hargrove, Esperanza Spalding, Joshua Redman, Dianne Reeves and several lesser-known, but equally talented musicians. Sessions at Avatar Studios (New York City) were produced by Jason Olaine, recorded by Joe Ferla and mixed by Ron Davis at Oregon’s Wing and a Prayer Productions. Asked about recording “Someday My Prince Will Come” in Avatar “C” with the ageless Dave Brubeck, Ferla comments: “Dave was a sweetheart and a real gentleman. Very alert, very focused, and just seemed to have fun playing. It was inspirational to record this legend and see how passionate he still is after all of these years.”
