Customer Reviews

Exciting and beautiful!

"In the ever-changing world of what we call the 'music business,' Joyce Cooling and long time partner Jay Wagner have savvied up and released this independently owned album (their 7th studio project to date), GLOBAL COOLING. The world-class recording features her signature body- moving, funky blend of contemporary jazz with global flavors that we've come to love and expect. Eleven new tunes, all compelling… in particular, we're digging the horn- enhanced, 'Grass Roots,' the chilled funk of the title track, the smoothness and layered vocals of 'Save This Dance For
Me' and the sweet, soulful vocal 'What Are We Waiting For?'" - Sandy Shore / Smooth Jazz Radio

"Global Cooling is like taking a transcontinental flight, touching down in fun, exciting and beautiful places. We were inspired to travel into uncharted territory, so we really stretched ourselves to get our passports in order! We played with a lot of new instruments and layered Tablas, congas, bongos, sitar, berimbau and even accordion over funk, rock
and jazz. It was a trip." - Joyce Cooling

Smooth & Soul Review:

"Smooth like a cheetah crawls Joyce into the starting Grass Roots. The reggae flavored bass and a strong horn section perfectly surround Joyce energetic guitar lead. Jay Wagner shines on a syncopated piano. The propelling Global Cooling is Joyce's tribute to the green-globe effort. The pumping beat is performed by Billy Johnson (drums) and
Roberto Quintana (percussion).

A real popular melody is the grooving Save This Dance For Me. Joyce earned high accolades on the Berks Jazz and Seabreeze festivals this year with her new album. Cobra is a little trip to India instrumentally inspired by tables and sitar. Joyce comments:  'I have some favorite Indian ragas, or scales, that I always wanted to play. The scales didn't fit over any of our previous songs, so we wrote Cobra, using one of my favorite ragas as a springboard.'

Hooking melodies and lyrics are Joyce's great potential and talent. What Are We Waiting For? is a brilliant example of her blessed gift in the style of Joni Mitchell. Dolores In Pink is a tight collaborating between Jay, Joyce and long time drummer friend Celso Alberti. A Samba groove with a hypnotic power.

We Can is not an announcement but a fact. When someone deserves a prize for innovation then it is Joyce Cooling for this fantastic jazzy rap song. Especially recommended for percussion fans, congas, bongos, timbales, berimbau are the strong beat backbones.

One of the band's favorite restaurants in Detroit is Rhythm Kitchen. The 114-foot marble waterfall at Fishbone's is hard to ignore, but if that weren't enough for aesthetics, it also has a huge aquarium with beautiful, big, bright tropical fish. This excellent restaurant is the title donor for the next song.

Perhaps inspired by Grace Jones' La Vie en Rose The Red Rose melts Jay's passionate accordion and Joyce's Spanish guitar to an elegant Tango d'amour. 'I have always love the way Jay plays accordion. The last time Jay's accordion playing was featured was on our very first CD Cameo on a song called, Voo Doo Chicken. He hasn't
lost a stitch,' comments Joys enthusiastically.

The origin of Chit Chat is to find in the conversation of two people observed by Joyce and ironically translated in a vocal view. Carnaval in Rio is the real thrill, an unparalleled experience and a definite once in a life-time event. Joyce and Jay join the Carnaval on In The Streets in their own way.

Celebrate Joyce's Global Cooling. It's a festival for brain and heart. Have the party of your life."

"it's the pulse of the emphatic title track and Cooling's musical salute to the safeguarding of our planet that rounds out the segment. Familiar, friendly, and occasionally exotic, while stretching well outside the confines of the everyday, Global Cooling is a gleaming collation of much of Joyce Cooling's finest material to date!!" - Jazz Lynx

Great music!

There is something for everyone on this CD. I love the funky jazz sounds mixed with a world flavor that describes Global Cooling in total. I am so glad to see Joyce expand beyond the smooth jazz format on many tracks. To hear a good mix of what's available on this CD, at least listen to Grass Roots, Global Cooling, Cobra, What Are We Waiting For, and Chit Chat. When you're done, I think you just might buy this one!
