On the 5th day of a Tony Bennett Christmas, the song of the day for Friday, December 18, 2020, is “Snowfall.”
About This Song
“Snowfall” was written in 1941 by Claude and Ruth Thornhill. It’s an unusual song: it’s a cool jazz song, though written in 1941, long before there was such a thing as cool jazz. It’s an evocative and moody song, and quite beautiful.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Snowfall” in 1968 and released it that year on Snowfall: The Tony Bennett Christmas Album. Robert Farnon arranged and conducted the album.
“Snowfall,” as well as the album of the same name, is available from Apple Music.
