Wave

Charlie Byrd

Byrd: September 16, 1925 – December 2, 1999

Written by Antônio Carlos Jobim for his eponymous 1967 album, “Wave” – in Portuguese also known as, “Vou Te Contar,” or “I Will Tell” – would in only a couple of years’ time receive a Frank Sinatra cover. “Wave’s” original composition was finishing up a hot decade for Jobim, as he had won four Grammys just two years prior.

Jobim is best known for having written “The Girl from Ipanema.”
