Dave Digs Disney is a studio album by Dave Brubeck Quartet. The original LP was issued only in mono, though stereo tapes were recorded at the time. Typically, mono versions were followed by a stereo release six months later. But back in 1957, at the dawn of the stereo era, there wasn't enough of a market. As a result the stereo mixes of the album's tracks weren't widely available until later re-releases.[2]

As the title suggests, the album features jazz renditions of songs featured in famous Disney animated films including Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella.
