Animated Film Musical - 1995

Just Around the Riverbend
Alan's thoughts
There were so many fantastic opportunities that came from my involvement with “Pocahontas”. But, above all the others, I would say that collaborating with Stephen Schwartz was the most important one.

I had no idea how having a fellow-composer writing my song lyrics would work out. To say the least, it was fantastic. Our first song together was “Colors of the Wind”. Quite a first effort! We had fun. We sparked each other’s creativity. And our writing partnership has only grown since then; as evidenced by “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” and “Enchanted”.
