About This Song
“Wave” (also known as “Vou Te Contar” in Portuguese) is a bossa nova song written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and was recorded on his 1967 album of the same name, Wave, on A&M Records. English lyrics were also written by and used for a 1969 recording by Frank Sinatra. Wave is known as Jobim’s most successful album to date and it was listed by Rolling Stone Brazil as one of the 100 best Brazilian albums in history. Stevan Pasero’s arrangement will catch and hold your ear immediately. Stevan’s fluid chordal passages, flawless technique, and harmonic transpositions are not only engaging to the listener yet also present a formidable test for the concert guitarist.
The song was voted by the Brazilian edition of Rolling Stone to be the 73rd greatest Brazilian song.
