"Upon listening to her music and voice... i fell in love.
Nice guitar rhythms and melodic too. Just looking on her cd cover, you can tell that she's oozing with sex appeal and she can play."
Totally a fan now

"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 Girl's Got to Play (not sing)

"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."
