Sylvia Telles (1934 – 1966) made her recording debut in 1957- a record that featured Antonio Carlos Jobim as arranger and conductor on two tracks. Sylvia would later record a great number of Jobim compositions.
She appeared at Faculdade de Arquitetura (May 21st 1960), which was the first Bossa Nova festival. This is another early example of the marriage of Bossa Nova to US jazz, featuring the great Barney Kessel on guitar and Calvin Jackson on piano.

Sylvia Telles tragically died in a car crash in December 1966, aged just 32.
