Jambi (Tool song)

"Jambi" is a song by American rock band Tool. The song was released as a single and the second track from their fourth studio album 10,000 Days. It was made officially available for radio airplay on February 12, 2007. Adam Jones uses a talk box effect during the guitar solo.

The song is in 9/8 time, except for the guitar solo where the rhythm is temporarily changed to 6/4 before going back to 9/8.

The title has been said to primarily refer to the iambic meter used in the lyrics of the song, as 'jambi' means 'iamb' in Finnish, but given the lack of more than an inevitable amount of iambs in the lyrics, this possible reference is doubtful. This title has also been said to refer to Jambi, a province of Indonesia. From when this statement is made "Here from the king's mountain view", as if to imply he is the king of Jambi.

Drummer Danny Carey stated that when bassist Justin Chancellor played the bass track of the song, it instantly reminded him of the children's television program Pee-wee's Playhouse, then singer Maynard James Keenan thought of the genie "Jambi" and had the idea to make the song's theme about making wishes.
