Walt Disney Imagineering worked with jazz experts and institutions from around the country to create this exhibit that would “explore the rich history and influence of this ever-evolving genre of music.” Disney hopes that this will be an exhibit that inspires guests as much as it did the Imagineers who worked to bring it to life.

Along with unveiling The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure today, Disney also released a video from John Batiste. Along with being an incredible Jazz pianist and bandleader, Batiste also wrote the original jazz compositions and arrangments for Soul. In this video, he shares his excitement about this new exhibit.
