I'm not sure if this is who you are looking for but singer Amy Grant sings a very nice rendition of Sleigh Ride. Coincidentally, I was looking for Christmas songs on Itunes the other day and came across her version of the song....very nice.

Given your description, I am guessing that you are talking about Ella Fitzgerald's version of the song. It's really good, one of my favorites. It's on the album Ella Wishes you a Swinging Christmas but it's also on a lot of compilations since it is such a popular version of this classic song.
