Antonio Carlos Jobim's music career is also the story of bossa nova, the genre he helped put on the world map in the late 1950s and early 1960s. His collaborations with poet Vinicius de Moraes and writer-composer Oscar Mendonça gave rise to such timeless classics as Desafinado, Samba de Uma Nota So, Agua de Beber and Garota de Ipanema (The Girl from Ipanema).
