Blistering! Good gawd! If you want to listen to this music I would suggest the following precautions: apply a good layer of sunscreen (at least SPF 35), wear at least two pairs of underwear (I'll explain later), make sure you're properly hydrated (Sure, nobody has ever been hospitalized because of being exposed to a single jazz composition, but do you really want to take the chance? At your age?), and make sure you've had plenty of rest beforehand.
I'm no physics expert but I'd say that there's a fair chance burning rays will be developed when "Wild Jungle" is released into the local environment. Between the percussion antics of Cuban-born conga legend Candido, the trumpet solo ripped by Michael Taylor, and the white hot, insane lines exploding from the horn section, there's a decent chance that your clothing may spontaneously combust. If that happens, you don't really need to thank me for the duplicate underwear idea. I'm just looking out for the safety of jazz fans everywhere. Please pass the Coppertone.
