New album by KAIT DUNTON – trioKAIT 2

March 30, 2018

Kait Dunton is a composer & pianist from Los Angeles. With the new album trioKAIT2 she expands her piano-bass-drums trio with vintage keyboards and sounds, but still keeping the unconventional spirit of the trio.

The tracks are exploring sounds and moods using classic keyboards like the Fender Rhodes and the Wurlitzer electric piano and Kait says about that: “As a composer I’ve always strived to see how modern I could get the acoustic piano to sound. But at the end of the day it’s still just an acoustic piano – there are inevitably limitations. As soon as I started getting into the world of pedals, I realized how inspiring a sound can be.”

With her trio members Cooper Appelt (bass) and Jake Reed (drums) Kait formed a true family and that’s what can be heard in their music. A very locked-in collaboration with same feel and spirit for Kait’s compositions. She was a member of Snarky Puppy during their formative years in Texas, appearing on their sophomore record, The World is Getting Smaller. And on her own albums Kait has worked with such jazz masters as Peter Erskine, Bob Mintzer, John Daversa and Darek Oles.
