Caili O'Doherty

A native of Portland, Oregon, Caili O’Doherty has received national awards for jazz piano performance and composition from Downbeat Magazine as well as an ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composer award. Initially trained as a classical pianist, Caili was exposed to a variety of musical styles before discovering her love for jazz at age eleven when she transferred to a performing arts school. She attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA on a full scholarship and graduated with a degree in jazz piano performance. During her time at Berklee, Caili was a member of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute, an intensive honors performance program headed by highly acclaimed pianist Danilo Perez. Through this program, Caili had the opportunity to work closely with some of the leading musicians in the jazz world, including Joe Lovano, John Patitucci, Dave Liebman, Adam Cruz, Terri Lyne Carrington and Danilo Perez.

Caili has performed with various jazz groups at the Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia (opening for pianist Martial Solal), the Toronto Jazz Festival, the Panama Jazz Festival (opening for the Wayne Shorter Quartet), Mt. Hood Jazz Festival (as pianist for Terrell Stafford), Portland Jazz Festival, the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival in Ireland, Boston Beantown Jazz Festival, MICI International Film Festival in Mexico, Stanford Jazz Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, and UNESCO First International Jazz Day in Paris, as well as two US State Dept. supported tours to Colombia and Togo and Benin in West Africa.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
