A play on "The Jazz Singer"?
11 August 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I assume that with this title, the Disney folks were parodying the title of the sound sensation "The Jazz Singer", though the film itself has nothing to do with this Jolson film. Instead, it mostly consists of Mickey entertaining the audience by playing the piano in a jazzy fashion. However, several times as he plays there are riffs that sound strongly inspired by George Gershwin. The music is all very pleasant but there just isn't much to the film. As a result of it having no plot and a lot of songs, it doesn't stand up as well as other early Mickey toons. Worth seeing for die-hard Mickey fans and film historians but pretty easy for others to skip.
