If you appreciate both the relative modernism in the pianism of Sarah Tandy and a long trek away the contrasting tradster vocabulary of Champian Fulton you will very possibly dig US pianist Caili O'Doherty whose accessible get-down Quarantine Dream is out soon on the straightahead Posi-Tone label and whose own sound lands somewhere slap, bang in the middle of all the above while forging ahead and not omitting to deliver a route-to-the-roots of classic riff and groove-drenched bluesiness. Saxophonist Nicole Glover is Joshua Redman-like, another big plus factor here for the feel goodness that circulates and transmits. Several tracks of this quartet studio album (bassist Tamir Shmerling and drummer Cory Cox complete the line-up) are streaming ahead of next week's full album release. Clearly Caili has a calling. Listen in natural response. SG
