"This Girl's Got to Play" is one of those CDs I have been looking for to put in my collection. It's not the greatest CD I have ever heard, nor does it do anything groundbreaking in terms of smooth jazz, but it does an excellent job of making me want to listen to the CD over and over again. Songs such as "Expression", "Camelback", "Green Impala", and "Toast and Jam" is the typical Cooling guitar flair, which is a good thing. Cooling's vocal tracks ("No More Blues", "This Girls Got to Play", and "Talk") do not provide the dynamic effect on the smooth jazz genre as say, Anita Baker, Diana Krall, or Sade, but she does manage to keep the tunes going and make it a pleasant listening experience.
Give this CD a try, chances are there is something you'll like on this CD.

I discovered Joyce C. by acciden't and it's been a big surprise. On the surface you could say it's like a mix of Larry Carlton meets Candy Dulfer, but after you get in it's a whole different thing. All tracks are good and intelligent compositions. Joyce's playing is superb. But maybe the reason why I liked the album is the reason why some didn't like it as much, and it's that the album sounds "amateurish", that "she is not there yet"... so great!, because that makes the music fresh, new and upbeat. Highly recommended.

i first heard joyce cooling on a contemporary jazz station on xm radio and really liked her so i got this cd--this girl's got to play. i really like the instrumental songs but the vocals are pretty weak--and there are four of them. she plays the guitar so well i don't know why she would want to cover up or detract from her great guitar playing. the other issue i had with this cd was there was nowhere on the outside that told you there were all these vocals. all i every heard on the radio was instrumentals and that is what i expected to get. if you like female vocalists you might like this one better than i did but i really prefer instrumental pieces.

Yes indeed, what a GREAT CD. I too heard Ms. Cooling on the radio and gave this CD a buy, and MAN was it the BEST! She really is one of the most amazing guitar players ANYWHERE. I was also VERY moved by the vocal tracks. I think that one reviewer who had a problem with there even being vocal tracks just DOESN'T GET IT! Plus, when he said "those of you into female vocalists might like it" ... yikes! That said enough. I found the vocals unique and cool -- just like Joyce!! Oh well. HIGHLY SUGGEST this CD and this artist!!

I have all of Joyce's albums and I think "This Girl's Got to Play" is right up there with "Third Wish". I especially enjoyed "Wizard", "Green Impala" and "Expression". I was disappointed that she did not really show her guitar acumen on more of the tracks. However, I think most Cooling fans will appreciate this CD. Joyce, please on future albums, do what you do so well in concert, scat and play. Enjoy!!

I just started getting into smooth jazz about 2 months ago and "This Girl's Got to Play" was only the sixth or seventh album I purchased of the genre. This album is solid, no doubt. My biggest complaint, however, is that I have never been a fan of vocals on an instrumental album. Satriani did it back in his "Flying in a Blue Dream" days and it didn't go over so well. Neither do they here. I can deal with one vocal track but three ("No More Blues", "This Girls Got to Play", and "Talk") is two too many. To be quite honest, she's not that great a singer. And while her ability to write music appears to be quite solid, her lyrical writing is not. While I have yet to purchase other albums by Cooling, my understanding is that this is not the best one to start a collection with. Now, having said all of that, songs like "Expression", "Green Impala", and "Toast and Jam" are very well done. An overall solid album but not great.

I saw Ms. Cooling at the WAVE Fest at the Greek Theatre in LA a week ago (October, 2005). What an amazing guitarist she is, and oh my what a band. So I bought this CD here a few days later and holy cow, am I forever into this girl and her "gotta play" skills. I fully intend to dive deep into her previous stuff as well. This, folks, is one talented musician. Treat yourself, get this CD and get into Joyce Cooling. And, PS ... her keyboard player, producer, Jay Wagner may be the most amazing player I have seen live.

This is my first Cooling purchase and I was not aware that she also sings. Or,attempts to. I understand why the only cuts I hear on the radio are instrumentals. The instumentals are decent, though not exceptional, smooth jazz offerings. I agree that the girl's got to play but, she should drop the singing or leave it to someone else.
