Listen to Disney's 'Princess and the Frog' soundtrack
Disney's latest animated adventure -- and its first with an African-American heroine -- "Princess and the Frog" opens wide Dec. 11, but you can hear it here first.
The Mouse House has released the movie's soundtrack online, and in keeping with its New Orleans setting, listeners will find plenty of jazz and swing.
It's a toe-tapping album, one that has, on this cold wintry day, kept us warm with visions of jambalaya and nights in French Quarter.
Fair warning: The link will open Windows Media Player on your system, so don't be startled.
