The ending to Tony’s rendition of Snowfall is mesmerizing…..just fades like a gently swirling snowflake into the white landscape Classic winter’s tune,, great interpretation. .
Thank you for your comment, John. I love this recording for the same reason and love to open The Twelve Days of a Tony Bennett Christmas with this song.
