Just when it felt like Pixar was stealing all of Disney's musical thunder (not to mention animation thunder), Disney came back strong with The Princess and the Frog, which uses a Big Easy musical tapestry (jazz, R&B, Cajun, Creole and more) to deliver one of its best soundtracks ever (we're serious - this one is fantastic). And Randy Newman, famous for his Pixar songs, crosses over to Disney. It's a win-win: Disney scores Newman's talent, and he gets to dig deeper into the New Orleans template that has enriched his solo material for years
