Product Description

Mickey Mouse, that is. Disney classics get that atmospheric Mannheim Steamroller treatment, including Chim Chim Cher-ee; Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah; Heigh-Ho; When You Wish upon a Star and more. 12 tracks!

Amazon.com

From the heartland of Nebraska, under the creative guidance of Chip Davis, the enormously popular Mannheim Steamroller has made some of the country's bestselling faux-classical synth-pop New Age music, as witnessed by the Fresh Aire and Christmas serials. Beginning in 1974, Mannheim Steamroller cleverly and skillfully created a niche--and more lucratively, a market--for their outfit and for a genre that has grown to encompass the likes of Yanni and Zamfir. On Mannheim Steamroller Meets the Mouse, Davis and his cast of accomplices tackle Disney stalwarts such as "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" (from Song of the South) and "Chim Chim Cheree" (from Mary Poppins), as well as relative newcomers to the Mouse catalog, including "Go the Distance" (from Hercules) and "You've Got a Friend in Me" (from Toy Story). Sadly, despite sweet moments in their rendition of Mulan's "Reflection" or the beloved Pinocchio tune "When You Wish Upon a Star," on which there is a lovely hand-bell choir sound, at best the Mannheim Steamroller registers a tepid nice. --Paige La Grone

Customer Reviews

I love Disney Music and I love Mannheim Steamroller.
Teresa Franklin
Chip Davis does a good job with the arranging, and it has the Mannheim sound that we all love.
Wendy M
We had a lot of fun trying to guess what the song was without looking at the CD cover.

Format: Audio CD
This 1964 Academy Award winner for Best Song "CHIM CHIM CHER-EE", performed by Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke in the Disney's multi-hit "Mary Poppins", is nothing less than spectacular by Chip Davis and Mannheim Steamroller gang.
Each selection seems to have that original sound, works so well with the tunes we grew up with and still enjoy to this day, thanks to the clever arrangements of Chip Davis. A wonderful compilation of songs from today and the past, given the "steamroller" treatment, fresh and upbeat.
Chip never ceases to amaze his fans, with "HAKUNA MATATA", "GO THE DISTANCE", "YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND IN ME" simply outstanding...but the highlight is "WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR" the 1940 Academy Award winner for Best Song, beginning with "twinkle, twinkle little star", blending and interwoven beautifully by Davis and the Mannheim gang. Chip sets his standards to the highest level with every album, and his impeccable rhythm and incredible control of dynamics is the mainstay to all of his fans...Mr. Davis, you're ONE OF A KIND!
Total Time: 41:53 on 12 Tracks...Disney/American Gramaphone 12835...(1998)

Format: Audio CD
In all fairness, I must say I was pleasantly surprised with this CD. After the brilliance of "Fresh Aire 7," Chip Davis seemed to have lost something. His tracks on the Day Parts series never came close to his earlier works, and although "Impressions" was good, it lacked the dramatic punch of Fresh Aire 7. With "Meets The Mouse," he has redeemed himself at least partially, even if much of the album is made up of Mannheim cliches.
Almost every track on this album has an equivalent on an earlier album. "Mickey Mouse March" gets almost the exact same treatment as "Jingle Bells" did on "Christmas In The Aire." "Davey Crocket" uses the 12/8 beat found on "Escape From The Atmosphere" and "Deck The Halls." "Go The Distance" has subtle traces of "Sunday Morning Coffee," and it ends with the theme from "Going To Another Place," which Chip seems to have included at least once on every album since "Fresh Aire 2." Does any of this matter? Not really, other than that it makes the album sound more like a "How To Sound Like Steamroller" instructional tape than an album in and of itself. In other words, if you have their other albums, don't expect to hear much new here.
Still, it's a pleasant enough experience, and Chip did do some interesting arrangements. He has a genuine knack for making music that invokes fond memories with a touch of sadness. He did it most brilliantly on "A Fresh Aire Christmas," and to a lesser extent, he does it here, too.
My only real complaint with this album is that, despite the fact he uses an orchestra, the arrangements often sound as though they're coming entirely from a MIDI keyboard.

I almost did not get this CD after listening to the 30 second samples, but I'm now glad I have the CD. Anyone who likes Disney tunes will appreciate these fun arrangements. Chim Chim Cher-ee, Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, Under the Sea, Davy Crockett, Heigh-Ho, and When You Wish Upon a Star are the best of the lot. Although Hakuna Matata is not faithful to the original song from the score of The Lion King, it is an absolute hoot...you gotta listen to it.

I hate to say this, but the cover art is the best part, by far, of this CD. I own EVERYTHING Mannheim Steamroller has ever produced, and I know what to expect from Chip Davis' eclectic arrangements. That being said, I was very underwhelmed by this offering. What it seems to be is a collection of intros that end before getting to the "meat" of the songs.

If you are looking for something that will leave you whistling familiar Disney tunes, this isn't it.

Format: Audio CD
Mannheim Steamroller's style of music hasn't changed as long as their first Christmas CD. They have a talent of taking original music and transforming it into another world of synthisizer and adding their own creative works.
The reason I gave it four stars is because I know Mannheim Steamroller likes to add their own touch, but this music was a little too off, especially "Hakuna Matata." They spent too much time on the startup, the ending, the background, and on top of all that, the tracks were too short. For example, the average track on the CD took about one minute to reach the actual tune, and took a minute to end it without using the tune, and the tracks were all about three minutes an thirty seconds so the actual tune went on for only thirty seconds! The point is they went too off track.
But although the tracks are a little off, Mannheim Steamroller succeeded once more in making a wonderful CD that takes original songs and transforming them into a world of imagination. For any Disney freaks, buy this CD.

I just received and listened to this selection. I totally disagree with sboloch's review. This person is obviously not familiar with Mannheim Steamroller's/Chip Davis' work, which is to build their own sound AROUND a familiar tune, to add and tweak it, as well as create their own original music. I had no problem finding traces or whole sections of the Disney music, which was totally acceptable within this structure, with the exception of HAKUNA MATATA. Nothing except the words was kept from that piece but perhaps the words were the only thing they were after. I usually purchase the Xmas CD's but thoroughly enjoyed this one. As a person who watched the original Mickey Mouse Club, I found the last selection to be positively haunting, akin to my favorite Mannheim Steamroller piece, SILENT NIGHT. If we all wanted to hear the original tunes as produced by Disney, Disney makes their own CD's. Kudos to Chip Davis!
