RAINBOW BABY, the third and most personal recording as a leader by jazz pianist and composer CATHLENE PINEDA, is an impressionist rendering of four years of motherhood, pregnancy, loss, and, ultimately, love. It is a personal tale with a universal theme.

Pineda is a classically trained pianist with a master’s degree in jazz piano and composition from CalArts. She is part of the Southern California jazz scene and has worked with many talented artists, like Charlie Haden, Bobby Bradford, Art Lande, Wadada Leo Smith, Albert “Tootie” Heath, Kris Tiner, Vinny Golia, and Joe LaBarbera.

RAINBOW BABY is a narrative exploring the joy of birth, the sadness of two miscarriages, and the toll of illness in the family, experiences which gave Pineda new perspectives on life and a deeper sense of empathy, which she translated into music.

Cathlene Pineda’s playing and composing are technically astute and emotionally gratifying. She is able to weave intricate patterns without overwhelming the songs with needless complexity. She writes and plays from her heart and head, which makes RAINBOW BABY a completely fulfilling musical experience.

Thank you Kris, Tina, and Dave for going to the end of the earth with me and never complaining about my deceivingly impossible music. Thank you to my patient and inspiring husband who didn’t think twice about encouraging me to make an album despite the demands, cost, and time, and thank you, endlessly, to my beautiful, perfect people, Milo and Sylvia, who made me a whole person; exhausted, worn, and madly in love.
