"For those that don't know what this is,,,,,,it's essentially smooth electronic jazz, but all the sounds were created by sampling sounds made by animals. Thus the kick drum sound comes from the wing-whir of the Ruffed Grouse, the "singing" from a parrot at the San Diego Zoo, and all the other "instruments" created from the sounds of wildlife. The liner notes explain where each instrument sound came from in each song.

A fascinating idea, well executed, very listenable and fun."

"This is really wonderful both in concept and execution. I too downloaded it after having owned the album. Unfortunately Amazon does not include the liner notes. Does anyone here have them? I am particularly interested in where the synthesizer sound comes from."
A classic!

"It's neat to see people discovering this CD in the 90's. I first heard it when it first came out, as Schoolkid's Records here in Ann Arbor MI had it featured soon as they got it. It was a bargain for what it truly is-even now, 14 years later, very listenable and current-sounding. I completely wore out my tape of it and had to buy the CD of it recently. These critters were ahead of their time! Give this a play and then call your local smooth jazz station and DEMAND they play something from "Gorillas in the Mix!" You will love the howling wolves and Turkey Corwin, parrot star of the San Diego Zoo!"
