I just love Disney music. I listen to it while house cleaning and imagine all "the little animals" helping me. LOL! Disney songs uplift me and help me see the brighter, peaceful, and blessed life I've been given. This is a necessary CD for anyone who is fed up with the duldrums of everyday life. I feel the Spirit when I play this CD while doing chores. It brightens my day and I tackle problems better and with more hope. Love this CD! Thank you!

I am a violinist myself, and the first time I heard Jenny Oaks Baker, she immediately became my all time favorite violinist. She doesn't just play wonderfully, she plays with the Spirit. As I listen to this CD, I am transported back to my childhood where innocence and happiness dominated. I realize that, with the Lord's help, my dream of teaching music and becoming a wife and a mother is possible if it is the Lord's plan.
so relaxing and wonderful!

Amazing, lively renditions of Disney classics

I love her other arrangements and was not disappointed with this latest CD. She makes the Violin sing as she adds her flare to each classic. We often have it playing in the kitchen while we make meals. Our kids love it and recognize some of the songs they know.
Brilliant harbinger of the future of classical

The brilliant Jenny Oaks Baker has found the perfect musical vehicle. Young, accomplished and musically daring, this virtuosic tour-de-force takes on some of the most beloved of Disney's music. At times playful, and at other times somber, Jenny accompanied by a well-matched orchestra pulls at the heartstrings of our collective musical childhood. Bravo Jenny! We will be looking forward to much more.
