“Triste” is a bossa nova written by the great Brazilian musician and composer Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Triste which means “sad” in English was included in Jobim’s hit 1967 record “Wave”.

Many famous artists have recorded and performed this song such as Frank Sinatra and of course Jobim himself. Triste is performed in many different keys so it is best to be able to transpose it if needed. The common jam session key is typically Bb major.
