"The Princess and the Frog" Soundtrack Preview

Disney's "The Princess and the Frog" is finally opening Friday (December 11th, 2009) and the 'pre-buzz' (from all those who are managing to get into the exclusive previews) is excellent from many different quarters.Here's a little treat, especially if you love New Orleans-type jazz and zydeco (albeit rather Disney-fied). Disney has released the soundtrack to listen to online (for free).
The link is HERE.
A heads up: it opens a Windows Media Player so don't be alarmed when it pops up.
And a warning: the music clip opens with the contemporary song Disney seems to feel compelled to include for their end credits (and contemporary tie-in). I couldn't fast forward past it to the actual screen tracks but hang in there. If you enjoy jazz you should find some pieces you'll enjoy, especially if you like Randy Newman's music.
You can see a track listing with some other details HERE.

  1. Wow, your warning is apt. That first song is awful. The other songs feel really fun, though. I still am not sure how I feel about this movie, but the animal designs are certainly cool.
