"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. It is in 9/8 time, except where the rhythm changes temporarily to 6/4 for the guitar solo, during which Adam Jones uses a talk box effect, before returning to 9/8.
Its title has been said to primarily refer to the iambic meter used in the lyrics of the song, as 'jambi' means 'iamb' in Finnish. 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.
