Wild jungle beat music
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chaino's music is hard to describe, but once you've heard it you won't forget it. Often mis-filed under "lounge" or "easy listening," Chaino rocks far more than Esquivel or Enoch Light. Basically, it is '50s Hollywood-style African percussion, but crazier than most. You may already know Chaino as his stuff has appeared as background music in the movie "Forces of Nature" and on the TV shows "Sex and the City" and "The Real World." This CD contains material from his various '50s albums. Fans of the "Las Vegas Grind" series should really dig Chaino."
Chaino, a true genius.

"I've been a fan of all kinds of music, especially primitive rhythms, for many years, and have a great respect for, the origin of music. I cannot believe what this man Chaino has done to african music . He is the first congo drummer who not only has reinvented primitive percussion, but for the first time, I can enjoy listening to his work. Though still a fan of african drumming, I have always found it boring to listen to until Chaino brought life into it, giving it a new meaning. This CD is so different, I can't describe it. I can't find a musical catagory for it. This could be a beginning of a new sound if some music producer could incorporate it into rock or in other ways and create new primitive dances for the kids to enjoy instead of the negative, demoralizing and demeaning rap music."

"when discussing my sex life with my dear husband with a friend, she handed me a strange looking cd and said, "take this and say nothing". I surmised that she wanted me to take it home and play it. I did and when I put it on our cd player and played it, I became disturbed at the sexual feelings I experienced from it, but when I played it for my husband, he demanded to shut that crap off. that evening there was no sex as usual, "wham,bam,thank you maam", but we both experienced wild sex like we've never had in our 28 year marriage. he later accused me of fooling around but,when I convinced him it was the music, he said,"turn it back on". tho he still doesn't like the cd for himself, he encourages me to listed to it. when I told my friend what that cd did for our sex life, she told me how it saved her marriage. now even tho some of my friends laugh at me when I tell them how it brought real spice back into my marriage,I don't care. my husband is much kinder and more attentive even tho we have an almost savage sexual relationship since. I just wanted to share this with other wives who think that's the way things are when you're married a long time.It doesn't have to be that way. now I can't wait for my husband to come home, and he can't wait to come home either. thank you for allowing me to write this."
