Exploring the history of the groove

“Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”

 

“Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let  It Snow!” was written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in the summer of 1945. Connee Boswell has been one of the many singers over the years that recorded her own rendition of Cahn’s and Styne’s song. Boswell was one of the most well known American jazz singers during the 1930s. “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” was Boswell’s only holiday recorded track. She recorded it during November 1945 with trombonist, Russ Morgan and his orchestra.

Her rendition of the newly released holiday song had a jazz sound to it, unlike the original recording from Vaughn Monroe. Throughout the song, you can hear instruments such as the trombone, saxophone, and piano being played. Boswell’s rendition of the song made its way to being number nine on Billboard.
