This episode, the Mouse Lounge proffers a plethora of percussion!

But first, we go Behind the Mickey Bar, as Liana and I talk about our upcoming meet at Westfest 2012 and then delve into Disney news.

Next, a Mouse Lounge Special Feature:  The BBCs Russell Davis looks at how the archives have treated to the two faces of Walt Disney.  Uncle Walt, who brought laughter and pleasure to millions, and… the rather tough businessman and social engineer. Enjoy the third of a five part series, Double Disney.

Then, from the Disney Archives:  From the January 30, 1966 episode of Wonderful World of Color, Professor Ludwig von Drake introduces us to the art of Jazz and the swinging short subject, After You’ve Gone from the 1946 package film, Make Mine Music!

Then, from Vault Disney:  A few weeks ago I played a Disneyland Record, A Child’s Introduction to Melody based on the short, Toot Whistle, Plunk, and Boom.  Well your response was overwhelmingly positive but you asked, What about the original cartoon?   The short was originally released to theaters in 1953 and made use of the then new widescreen format and novel stereophonic sound.  It finally found life on DVD when it was released early on in the Walt Disney Treasures series called, Disney Rarites and I present the entire short for you here.   If you’ve never seen it, you can find it on youtube, albeit with rather poor audio quality.  Still, it’s absolutely worth seeing.

Then, from the original Mickey Mouse Club in 1956, the Firehouse Five + 2 join the Mouseketeers for a rip roarin’ Dixieland good time!  Listen carefully during The Tiger Rag, that’s Cubby O’Brien on the skins in a wicked awesome solo!

Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.  Percussion in the parks was brought front and center last year, drum line and all with the introduction of Disneyland’s, Soundsational parade.  Have a listen to this drumming infused Mouse Lounge remix!

Then, we head over to Epcot where even the street sweepers must take a break and form, the Jamitors.

We’ll close the show with a pair of percussive tracks from Tarzan, first the original “Trashin’ the Camp” from the original soundtrack, then the rich harmony laced pop cover featuring Phil Collins and *Nsync.  Lastly, as a special bonus, a battle of the drummers between the Muppets, Animal, and Travis Barker as he guests with the Electric Mayhem on Jimmy Kimmel live performing Can You Picture That!

This week the Mouse Lounge goes again Behind the Mickey Bar, with Liana Kilgore and I disscusing the latest Disney News, including a surprise resignation!

Next, a very special interview with former Mouseketeer, Jennifer McGill.  She was one of the few castmembers who was on the show all seven seasons in the 1990s!  Jennifer has released a new extended single on iTunes, a cover of her 1993 hit, Hanging On For Dear Life, and This Little Light, an original work co-composed with her producer, Jeff Savage.  Jennifer speaks candidly and fondly of her experience growing up a Mousketeer, and what has lead up to her new release.

This week, the Mouse Lounge reveals the magic of melody in Disneyland!

But first, we go Behind the Mickey Bar, as Liana and I talk about the new Cars Land, the just opened Jolly Holiday Bakery, Castmember beards, Fastpass, and more.

Next, a Mouse Lounge Special Feature:  The BBCs Russell Davis looks at how the archives have treated to the two faces of Walt Disney.  Uncle Walt, who brought laughter and pleasure to millions, and… the rather tough businessman and social engineer.  Enjoy the second of a five part series, Double Disney.

 

Then, from the Disney Archives:  Based on the Oscar winning cartoon, “Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom” comes a marvelous record narrated by the unmistakable Thurl Ravenscroft.  From the 1963 Disneyland Record DQ-1232, have a listen to “A Child’s Introduction to the Instruments of the Orchestra”.  Don’t let the title fool you; this record was lavishly produced.  It’s hard to believe this mini masterpiece landed in the kiddy records bin.

 

Then, from Vault Disney:  We focus on the music of two Silly Symphonies from the thirties.  The first is “Music Land” from 1935 and “The Woodland Café” from 1937.  Both are perfect examples of the use of music to further the narrative, and are just great fun to listen to.  I’ll provide a description of the of the plot for Music Land, so you can better follow along.

 

Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.  Did you know that Disneyland boasts ten different live performance groups that play in all four corners of the park?  This episode, you’ll get to hear from every one of them!  You’ll hear, the Main Street Piano Player, The Dapper Dans,  Hook and Ladder Company, the Straw Hatters, Billy Hill and the Hillbillies, Farley the Fiddler, The Bootstrappers, The Jambalaya Jazz Band, The Royal Street Bachelors,  and The Pearly Band.  Plus, you’ll hear special performances recorded on Fat Tuesday of the New Orleans Jazz Band, The Bayou Bash featuring Princess Tiana, and the Disneyland Band performing it’s full noontime concert with the theme, “Sunday in the Park”.

This week, the Mouse Lounge celebrates a birthday and takes a trip around World Showcase!

 First up, a Mouse Lounge Special Feature:  The BBCs Russell Davis looks at how the archives have treated to the two faces of Walt Disney.  Uncle Walt, who brought laughter and pleasure to millions, and… the rather tough businessman and social engineer.  Enjoy the first of a five part series, Double Disney.

 Next, from the Disney Archives, we dust off an old Capital Records album , DBX-3365 from 1954, as Disney Characters from countless films and shorts come to celebrate at Mickey Mouse’s Birthday Party.

 Then, from Vault Disney:  We travel to Epcot Center, circa 1982, as Danny Kaye introduces us to the wonders of World Showcase.

 Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.    Enjoy a musical trip around World Showcase featuring the talented artists and music groups who perform each day, ending a Mouse Lounge mix of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.

 We close the show with a pair of musical soundtracks inspired by World Showcase.  First, is the Laserphonic Fantasy.  This show made its debut on the World Showcase Lagoon in June 1984 and as the name implies featured lasers including the first use of non-continuous lines in a laser animation and the first use of laser graphics on a water-droplet screen.  Most of the soundtrack can be found on Don Dorsey's album "Busted".

 Lastly, culling from le crème de la crème of French Romantic and Contemporary classical music, Impressions de France ranks as among the best soundtracks to be found anywhere in Epcot.
