About the Album

"Padme" is the title track off of jazz pianist Caili O'Doherty's debut album, "Padme." The album title means “Lotus Flower,” which “begins growing at the bottom of a muddy pool, emerges and blooms on the surface of the water during daylight, and then closes and sinks below the surface each night, to bloom clean the next day.” She says, “To me, it embodies the idea that each person, despite the conditions they start from, can hope to realize their dreams.” O’Doherty’s prowess on acoustic and electric keys, her proclivity for writing airy, flowing melodies, and her clear vision as a leader are much in evidence on this CD. Caili O'Doherty: piano, Fender Rhodes; Zach Brown: bass; Cory Cox: drums; Mike Bono: guitar; Adam Cruz: drums (guest artist); Alex Hargreaves: violin; Caroline Davis: alto sax, vocals; Ben Flocks: tenor sax; Eric Miller: trombone.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
