Jungle Guitars boasts a title that sounds like it belongs on an old exotica album of the '50s, and indeed, the album revives the old Martin Denny trick of including bird song and other rainforest field recordings in the tunes. Aside from that, however, Jungle Guitars is a fairly standard Strunz & Farah album, with the two guitarists working together to create intricate webs of new age-influenced easy listening instrumental pop. There's a bit of Peruvian influence here and there, as on the mandolin-decorated "Selva" and the handful of songs goosed along by Latin hand percussion, and the tempos are a bit faster than on those Strunz & Farah releases that are aiming for a more relaxing feel. Other than that, this isn't much at all different than the duo's usual standard.
