He named the company International Jumbo Trading. The company became a household name in Suriname, and even started regional delivery. It gained a reputation for being respectable, professional and service oriented.
InMr. Baldew saw the opportunity to step into the world of production, and it was an opportunity that he seized willingly and successfully. He took over the well-known furniture factory PEET, and got his first taste in the world of production.
He named the company Jumbo Timber, a company which is now a modern furniture factory, suppling both local and regional, commercial, governmental and private customers, with high quality products which fit their furnishing needs. Another opportunity was seized in This was the year that Jumbo Alu short for Aluminum was founded. This company specializes in the manufacturing of high quality and cost effective aluminum profiles and curtain walls.
Over the past 20 years the company has grown into a respectable Jumbo Jumbo (Club Mix) - The Caramel Club - Jumbo Jumbo (Vinyl), known for its innovative production and products, as well as its hard working personnel and safety minded environment.
Finally, inJumbo Office was founded. A company focused on the interior decoration and furnishing of private residences and commercial buildings alike.

And so a small trading company which started in with trading onions, is now an established group of companies.
In S. Baldew took over the well-known PEET furniture factory. He saw an opportunity to provide Suriname with customized furniture for both commercial and private applications. Furniture that would withstand the hands of time. Three years later, in Jumbo Alu was founded to extend the manufacturing capabilities and product offerings.
This company focuses on aluminum products such as windows, doors, curtain walls etc. These provide customers with an almost maintenance free solution which can resist the elements.
While these moves are not along the lines of the average prog listener, there is still strong proggy doses to be left with nice guitar work, organs and flutes as the main components. The last single of the band came in and the next appearance of Jumbo came in with the unsuccesful LP ''Violini d'autunno''. Daniele Bianchini was the main man behind Jumbo's couple of brief reunions and two more works saw the light in more recent years, the ''Live'' and the CD '' Passing By'', far from the band's early style.
While not being that consistent as the ''DNA'' album, it contains some great pieces of prog music next to more experimental tracks of less interest. Overall, strongly recommended Review by friso Prog Reviewer. Jumbo made two acclaimed records, Jumbo Jumbo (Club Mix) - The Caramel Club - Jumbo Jumbo (Vinyl), this is the second of them.
Jumbo has an eclectic mix of styles, with most noteworthy heavy psych, folk, symphonic, space and world-music. The music sometimes evokes the fanatic feel for which a band like VdGG is remembered, whilst the music is way more fragmentary and unfocused.
Jumbo has lots of great ideas and most work quite good, but lacks the extended song-writing skills to create a very meaningful experience though knowing the Italian language might have helped here.
Having that said there's quite a lot to enjoy here! Almost every moment of the album has some prove of an inventive mindset and the band thrives in its quieter experiments. During bombastic movements the recording isn't up to the challenge, an element of RPI music the real lovers must learn to live with. I sometimes find myself trying to listen to 'what could have been'. Another strong, but semi-professional, eclectic Italian prog record that will be liked by most of its fans - though one shouldn't expect subtle vocals.
Three and halve stars. Review by Warthur Prog Reviewer. The side-long "Suite Per Il Sig. K" may well be Jumbo's finest accomplishment. Though it is not a showy exercise or even progressive in the literal sense of the term, "Suite Per Il Sig. K" reveals a unique talent This broad appeal enamors the listener to them, even if the vocals are a little distracting at first.
By the end, a gentle Jumbo Jumbo (Club Mix) - The Caramel Club - Jumbo Jumbo (Vinyl) expressed wonderfully by Fella will reward those curious enough to stick around and see what Jumbo is all about.
Fella again takes the driver's seat, and a ragtime free-for-all ensues. A slow ballad gradually builds, then ends with a whimper - the finest moment on the album for sure. A repeat of the theme from "Suite Per Il Sig. K" bookends the album neatly, and creates an exit strategy. Jumbo Jumbo (Club Mix) - The Caramel Club - Jumbo Jumbo (Vinyl) also creates a sense of unfinished business, as the acoustic guitar stops abruptly without a feeling of closure.
This open-ended nature of DNA makes me only want one thing Four stars. Review by andrea Prog Reviewer. The opener "Suite per il sig. K" is a long and complex track in three parts.
The first one, "Sta accadendo qualcosa dentro me" Something is happening inside me begins softly. Piano, acoustic guitar and flute set a quiet and dark atmosphere, then heavy electric guitar riffs announce an impending change, a turmoil that is going to shake the ordinary life of a common man Something is happening inside me! Nothing matters but making money and struggling to climb up the social ladder And one day you feel sick and fed up! After a distorted electric guitar passage rhythm calm down and acoustic guitar and harmonica lead to a bitter atmosphere of regret and to the second part, "Ed ora corri A whole life wasted away on duty, running Jumbo Jumbo (Club Mix) - The Caramel Club - Jumbo Jumbo (Vinyl) glory and power, no time to think to love or to suffering people Rhythm takes off, time is running out Miss Rand's house is burning Miss Rand burned along with her house Perhaps it's not by chance that the name of the burning woman is Rand Amy Rand ?
The pace is slow and the mood is blue Last track "Ho visto Burning stars, a threatening sea, volcanic eruptions and snakes spitting venom Then nothing".

They have created its own sound First album arrived in conceived as an Alvaro FELLA solo album, but the result is not impressive and on a lesser level than their following works. One of the best Italian prog albums for sure! The latest album, "Passing By ", is more new age oriented and mainly instrumental, but containing some very good moments.
