Jungle Jazz remains one of Les Baxter's loudest, most vibrant albums. The brass sections are in the limelight all the time, varying from silky sections over melodious jumpiness to shattering stabs. There are two specifically gorgeous compositions, each entirely different from each other: while Amazon Falls unites the Space-Age reverie with the endemic big band flavor, Isle Of Cuba provides the catchiest melodies and is a very bright and blithesome Mambo, although it cannot be linked to the overarching jungle theme. Enchantment, conviviality and intimidation – that's Jungle Jazz in a nutshell.
