Fridays Are For Frank: “Drinking Water” (feat. Tom Jobim) – Rio Olympics Edition
Frank Sinatra did a lot of cool stuff.
Universally accepted as being among the coolest were his collaborations with Antônio Carlos “Tom” Jobim — the Brazilian songwriter, composer, arranger, singer, and pianist/guitarist — the man who put the “Boss” in Bossa Nova, and wrote one of the most celebrated songs of all time, “The Girl From Ipanema.”
