Harry Connick Jr. has always loved leading a big band and, while his orchestra has played more modern music, there is always a strong New Orleans flavor to his repertoire.

In 2003 his big band appeared on television and performed a concise but action-packed version of “Frosty The Snowman.”

The good-humored song is infused with New Orleans parade rhythms, some group singing, and spots for the leader-pianist, trumpeter Leroy Jones, and trombonist Lucius Barbarin although the emphasis is on the full orchestra.
