American jazz singers Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra prominently featured Jobim’s songs on their albums Ella AbracaJobim (1981) and Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim (1967), respectively. Jobim is recognized the world overas one of the most influential composers of the 20th century. His first album, Sinfonia Do Rio De Janeiro, was recorded in1954, with Billy Blanco. « hide
