This paper explains that, on "Disney Songs the Satchmo Way", Louis Armstrong re-interprets the music of very familiar songs associated with Disney by adding a jazz flair to each song resulting in a more enjoyable sound than in their original format. The author points out that the new style actually makes the songs a much mellower flavor, which flows along nicely instead of being choppy in places as in the original Disney style. The paper analyzes the songs "Chim Chim Cher-ee", "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo", "The Ballad of Davy Crockett" and "When You Wish upon a Star", all of which definitely have that New Orleans flavor with trumpets, trombones and various brass instruments playing Disney tunes.

From the Paper:

"Another aspect that struck me was my attitude towards the kind of songs being performed. I had always thought of these tunes as children's songs, just funny, cartoon type lyrics and music. The way, in which these tunes were performed by Louis Armstrong, I could actually see some of them making it onto the charts. Even though they are suppose to be fun songs, the new format somehow gave them a little more seriousness. "
