Global Cooling (2009)
Global Cooling features Cooling’s signature, colorful, body-moving sound, blending 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 exciting, beautiful places. “We were inspired to travel into uncharted territory so we experimented with a lot of new instruments. We layered tablas, congas, bongos, sitar, berimbau and even accordion over funk, rock and jazz. It was a special, creative time for us.”
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. “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.
