Joyce Cooling - soulful, funky, and always original - presents her seventh studio album, Global Cooling. Global Cooling features Cooling's signature, colorful, body-moving sound, blending funky contemporary jazz with flavors and vibes from around the world. "It's eclectic - you can dance to it, you can trance to it. It's up to you." 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 and songwriting partner, Jay Wagner, have crafted a stunning collection of songs that embody places, feelings and thoughts. 'Cobra' and 'The Red Rose' paint sound-scapes of exotic lands. Other songs are born of ideas and concepts near and dear to Joyce. In particular, the title track, 'Global Cooling,' and 'We Can' are driven by Cooling's optimism and love of things global and universal. "Jay and I wanted to make music in the spirit of that interconnectedness that I like to call our global neighborhood." Cooling, who is known for her eclectic and swinging style, is recognized as one of the most dynamic and popular contemporary jazz guitarists in the world. She invites her fans to join her on the fantastic Global Cooling trek. Global Cooling continues Cooling's advocacy and commitment to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). Joyce will donate a portion of the proceeds from her CD sales to NAMI.
