Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this CD has no objectionable content. It has the potential to please everyone in the family: Kids will enjoy remembering the movies, while parents and grandparents will dig the style in which these standards are presented.
What's the story?
If you're looking for a tuneful CD likely to please everyone in the family, STEVE TYRELL: THE DISNEY STANDARDS delivers. From the beautiful "When You Wish Upon a Star" to the bouncy "Bear Necessities," the songs on this CD will have you singing along with a smile. One can only hope that all kids will appreciate the style in which the songs are presented -- small jazz combos, mostly -- as much as adults will. If not, just subtly mix Tyrell's adult-oriented arrangements with some songs that are more in tune with today's production values; remember, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down!
Is it any good?
This is a sweet set of classic songs from the Disney movie archives that will jumpstart a singalong from kids 0 to 99 on a long car trip. If there's any fault in this production, it's the fact that nowhere in the liner notes are we informed of the names of the movies that feature these songs. It's a minor inconvenience, but one expects better from the folks at Disney.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about their favorite Disney films and discuss how this music is able to convey these classics in a way that's a welcome break from the overly produced songs of today's era.
