Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the soundtrack of Disney’s 1991 Academy Award winnign animated feature Beauty and the beast.

The original songs were composed by Alan Menken, with   lyrics by   Howard Ashman. The album won the Academy Award for Best Original Score, the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and the Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition Written for a Motion Picture or for Television.


Elizabeth Shepherd has gained acclaim both at home (Canada) and abroad. Her albums have captured the ears of jazz tastemakers around the world including no less than Gilles Peterson. Elizabeth was nominated for nominated for a Best Vocal Jazz Juno Award in 2007 and has again been nominated for “Jazz Artist of the Year” by The Canadian Independent Music Awards, known as “The Indies”.
Her Trio features her sultry and funky vocal jazz and piano sound backed by the hard-swinging rhythm section of Scott Kemp (bass) and Colin Kingsmore (drums).

As far as being a “jazz performer”, Elizabeth does not count herself as one to be defined by a particular genre; her music comes straight from the soul, and is more than just what she does, but what she loves and who she is.
