Antônio Carlos Brasileiro de Almeida Jobim (1927 - 1994) also known as Tom Jobim, was a Grammy Award-winning Brazilian songwriter, composer, arranger, singer and pianist/guitarist.
A primary force behind the creation of the bossa nova style, Jobim is acknowledged as one of the most influential popular composers of the 20th century.
His songs have been performed by many singers and instrumentalists within Brazil and internationally.
"Wave" (also known as "Vou Te Contar" in Portuguese) was recorded as an instrumental on Jobim's 1967 album of the same name. English lyrics were added by Jobim for a 1969 recording by Frank Sinatra released on his 1970 album "Sinatra & Company". On that recording Sinatra sung his lowest note, a low Eb!
Another notable recording was made by Mel Tormé, live at the Fujitsu-Concord Festival 1990.
