I guess you'd have to credit both the Ike Qubeck and Charlie Rouse bossa nova albums as relevant entries, and, though not including any original compositions whatever, Bill Barron's "West Side Story Bossa Nova" album is a real goodie too (w/Kenny Burrell & the great Steve Kuhn...).

Oh! Of course: and Nat Adderley's "Jive Samba"!
