Also having to do with the "Wave" album pictured above:


"1967", Süddeutsche Zeitung, Germany, ISBN#__________ (August 2005).[Book & CD set]

From one of a series of 50 book & CD sets released by one of the largest German newspapers, "Süddeutsche Zeitung" which cover the music of 1950-1999:

This "1967" book and CD set contains the "Wave" track from the Jobim album of the same name, arranged/conducted by Claus Ogerman.  Below is a translated portion of the book from the original German, which mentions Claudio Slon and Bobby Rosengarden:

"In condition with the original version [of the title "Wave"] it has to be noted that the brilliant arrangement is descendent from Claus Ogerman, the Munich composer and arranger, who participates at all records which Jobim did in 1967. The piano is played by Jobim himself, trombone solo by the jazzman Urbie Green, rhythm section consists of the Miles-Davis-bassplayer Ron Carter and the Brazilian drummer Claudio Slon.

As no other Slon drummed soft and playful and yet powerful, so to speak swing and rock at the same time. All along his life he was disconsolate, that he was mentioned on the cover of "Wave" as one of three drummers. 'Yet I was the only; Bobby Rosengarden and Dom Um Romao contribute only parts of percussion.'"
