Wave (also known as "Vou Te Contar" in Portuguese) is a song written by Antonio Carlos Jobim. Recorded as an instrumental on Jobim's 1967 album of the same name, English lyrics were added by Jobim for a November 11, 1969 recording by Frank Sinatra, released on his 1970 album Sinatra & Company.
( from allaboutjazz.com ) - Singer, guitarist, pianist and—above all—composer Antonio Carlos Jobim was among the first artists to be signed by producer Creed Taylor when he set up CTI Records in 1967. The Brazilian, who helped launch bossa nova internationally when his tune "Desafinado" became a Top 10 hit for saxophonist Stan Getz and guitarist Charlie Byrd in 1962, had already worked with Taylor (producer of the Getz/Byrd disc), notably on The Composer Of Desafinado Plays (Verve, 1963). Unless you count the soundtrack for the 1959 movie Black Orpheus, which Jobim co-wrote with Luiz Bonfa, Wave was Jobim's third album, following the Verve disc and The Wonderful World Of Carlos Jobim (Warner Bros., 1965).
