Walt Disney’s newest animated feature, The Princess and the Frog (opening nationwide December 11), celebrates the music of New Orleans with big jazzy numbers and an unforgettable score composed by the Academy Award winning Randy Newman.
Featuring performances by New Orleans’ own Dr. John, the film’s Anika Noni Rose, Jim Cummings, Keith David, Michael Leon-Wooley, and Jenifer Lewis, with performances on trumpet by Terence Blanchard as well as multi-Grammy Award winner Ne-Yo, this is one album you’ll definitely want to get your hands on when it’s released on November 23.
We are thrilled to announce that our friends at Walt Disney Records have joined us in celebrating the release of the soundtrack and film by offering five lucky Stitch Kingdom fans their own copy of the soundtrack autographed by the soundtrack’s composer, music legend Randy Newman!
Walt Disney Records Proudly Presents ‘The Sherman Brothers Songbook Music Retrospective’ – Now Available
BURBANK, Calif. — On October 13, 2009 Walt Disney Records releases a two-disc retrospective collection of music by award-winning songwriting team, Robert Sherman and Richard Sherman.
