Tom Jobim 1927-1994, and Vinícius de Moraes
were the primary forces behind the creation of the bossa nova style.
A key event in making Jobim's music known in the English speaking world was his collaboration with the American jazz saxophonist
Stan Getz, and the singer João Gilberto , which resulted in two albums, Getz/Gilberto (1963)
and Getz/Gilberto Vol. 2 (1964). The release of Getz/Gilberto created a bossa nova craze in the United States, and subsequently internationally.
