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.
