The Founding Father of bossa nova and the composer of such contemporary standards as "Girl From Ipanema" and "One-Note Samba," Brazilian songwriter Antonio Carlos Jobim stands among the 20th century's best popular song/jazz composers. He came to prominence in the 1950s, by infusing jazz standards with Brazil's unique rhythms. His first work scoring a feature film, Black Orpheus (1958), greatly increased the popularity of his bossa nova music. Other film scores written by Jobim include The Adventurers (1970) and Gabriela (1983).
