Christmas Cheer from The Firehouse Five Plus Two

VaultDisney (no idea if it’s official) has posted this wonderful piece with Disney’s most famous jazz band The Firehouse Five Plus Two playing "Jingle Bells". It’s a great clip that features an introduction from Walt and some of Walt’s animators as part of the band: Danny Alguire on cornet, Harper Goff on banjo, Ward Kimball on trombone, Clarke Mallery on clarinet, Monte Mountjoy on drums, Ed Penner on tuba and
Frank Thomas on piano (and a great little harp piano doo-hickey).

I realize it’s a different time, but I wish Disney leveraged their in house talent to do more of these kinds of performances these days. (via CartoonBrew)
