Google Antonio Carlos Jobim and you will find answers to your question.
He wrote many of the standard tunes like Triste, Desafinado, Wave, etc.
I have a few songs by Jobim already, but I would like a few albums by him to further my knowledge anyway, so thanks for the reminder.
I'm looking for more artists like Jobim though, do you know any more?
