Caroline Davis and Caili O'Doherty have been working together in New York in various contexts for the past two years. From playing original music to standards and educational workshops, they have created a unique bond through the music.
Caili, a native Oregonian, has received national awards for jazz piano performance and composition from Downbeat Magazine as well as an ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composer award. She has performed with various jazz groups at the Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Kimmel Center (opening for pianist Martial Solal), Panama Jazz Festival (opening for the Wayne Shorter Quartet), Guinness Cork Jazz Festival, and UNESCO First International Jazz Day, as well as two US State Dept. supported tours to Colombia and Togo and Benin in West Africa. She released her debut album entitled “Padme” in 2015, comprised of nine original compositions.
Mobile since her birth in Singapore, Caroline Davis now lives in Brooklyn, New York. She has shared musical moments with a diverse group of musicians, including Matt Wilson, Ellis Marsalis, Bobby Broom, Greg Saunier, Matt Mitchell, Ron Miles, Dennis Carroll, Erin McKeown, Randy Brecker, Allison Miller, Jenny Owen Youngs, and Billy Kaye. Her debut album, Live Work & Play, was featured on All About Jazz’s best releases, and she was named one of JazzTimes’ Best New Artists in the 2012 Expanded Critics’ Poll. Doors: Chicago Storylines, Caroline's sophomore album, is an audio documentary that uniquely sets stories from Chicago's jazz scene from the 80s and 90s alongside her original music.
