Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed classical violinist Jenny Oaks Baker joins Emmy award winning composer Kurt Bestor to create a memorable and entertaining album featuring songs adapted from classic Disney favorites. This album will prove to be a favorite among those who grew up with these Disney classics as well as the children who are discovering them for the first time. Jenny Oaks Baker is one of America s most accomplished classical violinists. Whether you experience her music live or through one of her many recordings, it s impossible to escape the magic of her artistry. Jenny began playing the violin at age four, and made her solo debut in 1983 when she was only eight years old. Since then, she has thrilled audiences throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States.

This was an absolutely beautiful album. Once again, Jenny Oaks Baker has beautifully captured feeling and emotion and combined them into a stirring musical tribute to Walt Disney's timeless treasures. I am better off for having purchased this!

It's a fun album, but a sophisticated one. My kids are too young to recognize the melodies, but I am not, and the new treatment gave me an opportunity to enjoy them in a whole new way. I especially liked "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" It combined the intense longing of the movie version with a seriousness and sort of urgency that only a full orchestra could supply.

This from the Washington Times: "Bestor's and Baker's Disney is not your average Disney. "A Whole New World," the theme from Aladdin, was performed as a tango, for example.

"There are just so many amazing themes, and it was really fun to take our favorites and make them new," says Baker. "Kurt did a phenomenal job of giving the music a sophisticated treatment. Kids love the themes and melodies, and adults love the sophistication."

My husband has been a huge fan of Jenny Oaks Baker for a long time, as he has played the violin since he was 3. This is such an awesome compilation of Disney music and the arrangements are beautiful. My personal favorites are "Colors of the Wind" and "God Help the Outcasts" Beautiful music, well done Jenny!

This is a gorgeous album! I absolutely love the arrangements, even though some of them are quite different from the original, it's really just a beautiful and well produced album. Jenny's playing is superb and I think any fan of Disney music would really love these pieces. Very happy I purchased this!

This is a great cd for all ages. My little girls love it, because they recognize nearly all of the Disney songs. I love it because I appreciate her amazing talent for the violin. The music is flawless and pleasing to my ears. I would recommend this cd to anyone.

Jenny is one of my FAVE'S. You can't go wrong with any of her CD's. She is so talented, and the songs are beautifully created and inspiring.
