As recorded by New York Voices in 2013 (“Let It Snow” – 2013, Five Cent Records) – this is an old holiday favorite, which NYV has been performing for many years. This chart bounces along in ¾ with a big “one” feel, starting with very basic harmony, with added harmonic and rhythmic complexity added as the chart builds. The vocal parts include a mix of close voicings and independent lines. There is plenty of space for either scat or instrumental solos. The form of this version is slightly different than the recording, as the big band soli section is not represented in the trio parts.
