The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure
Today at EPCOT, guests have a chance to see a whole new exhibit. ‘The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure’ is making its debut.
Disney Parks Blog describes the new exhibit as an exhibit that “celebrates the distinctly American musical art form, originated by African Americans and fusing the influences of many different cultures.”
The exhibit features Joe Gardner, the musician and teacher from Disney and Pixar’s newest film, “Soul”.
Soul is all about music, specifically jazz music. If you have not had a chance to check out the film, take a look here for the trailer and summary of what it’s all about.
Joe Gardner shares the rich and surprising history of jazz by taking you on a musical tour of several influential American cities.
Guests can even view artifacts from famous jazz musicians, such as Louis Armstrong and Disney shares that soon guests will be able to use the Play Disney Parks mobile app to interact with the exhibit and test their knowledge of jazz.
The team from Walt Disney Imagineering has worked with jazz experts and institutions across the country to bring this exciting new exhibit to life.
Disney Parks Blog has shared a video from American pianist, band leader, and jazz extraordinaire, Jon Batiste. He provided the compositions and jazz arrangements for “Soul” and the following video shares his excitement for the new exhibit.
