Los Angeles-based composer and pianist Kait Dunton along with bassist Cooper Appelt and drummer Jake Reed Bring a modern , tight and groovy sound to the piano trio format. They shuffle wide-ranging influences and Kait's innovative compositions into a refreshingly modern take on instrumental music - including some classic favorites - that is as uncategorizable as it is infectious. Fused together via Kait's music, the trio melds into a laser-focused single entity that is captivating, playful, and exciting.
Kait has produced and released three albums of original compositions, with a fourth featuring her equally out-of-the-
box arranging style. Recognized on Jazz.com as one of "10 Future Female Jazz Stars," she has been described by critic Don Heckman as "an extraordinary talent on the rise" with impressive compositional skills.
