Madison, Wisconsin

Madison, Wisconsin

featuring Joyce Cooling's "Grass Roots"

This relaxing view of Madison, Wisconsin could easily be mistaken for a view across an inlet of Lake Michigan– except Madison lies in the middle of the state, removed from the Great Lakes. Still, Wisconsin’s capital has great lakes of its own: the “Four Lakes” of Mendota, Menona, Waubesa, and Kegonsa surround the city.

Looking at the downtown skyline, the Wisconsin State Capitol is impossible to miss. This is no accident; a local law prohibits any buildings within a mile to be taller than the capitol dome’s pillars. Although low, the downtown skyline remains dense with government buildings, the University of Wisconsin, and more.

Joyce Cooling is a contemporary jazz guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter. She has to her credit two #1 radio singles, six top ten and thirteen charting singles in all, and has garnered multiple music awards including the Gibson Best Jazz Guitarist of the Year. Cooling notably prefers to play her guitar fingerstyle.
