Boss nova fans are very much aware that  the founding of the genre, at times has been attributed, to Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius De Moraes, who are of legendary stature in the world of music . Chega De Saudade is often considered as the first recorded bossa nova song which was initially composed by Jobim and written by Vinicius and became a hit after Joao Gilberto released it as a single on an album of the same name.  The phrase itself which means ‘enough longing’ expresses an intense homesickness.
