TrioKAIT
KAIT DUNTON is a Los Angeles based composer & pianist with an unconventional approach to composition and to the piano trio, best expressed by her genre-pushing super group, trioKAIT. Together with bassist Cooper Appelt (Kan Wakan, Station Breaks, Robert Davi) and drummer Jake Reed (Bill Holman, Bruce Forman, Mako), trioKAIT brings a modern, tight and groovy sound to the piano trio format, shuffling wide-ranging influences and Kaits innovative compositions into a refreshingly modern take on instrumental music that is as uncategorizable as it is infectious. Fused together via Kaits 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. Her latest album, trioKAIT Casual, reached #5 on the Jazz Week radio charts. Her third record, trioKAIT, made the Huffington Posts list of The Best Jazz for 2015 and was featured in Downbeat Magazine as well as on JAZZIZ Magazines 33 Anniversary CD. Her second album, Mountain Suite, features master interpreters Peter Erskine, Bob Mintzer, John Daversa and Darek Oles.

Kait has been recognized on Jazz.com as one of 10 Future Female Jazz Stars and described by Don Heckman as an extraordinary talent on the rise with impressive compositional skills.  Her first album, Real & Imagined, has garnered high praise for Duntons writing and playing: [Kait] throws cold water on any notion that the piano/bass/drums format is an exhausted one. Its very much alive and well, and here is all the proof you need (Something Else! Reviews). In 2012, Kait released a second album of original compositions, Mountain Suite, featuring master interpreters Peter Erskine on drums, Bob Mintzer on tenor sax, John Daversa on trumpet and Darek Oles on bass.  The Examiner calls Mountain Suite a stunning showcase of a jazz newcomer holding her own with legends.

In addition to composition and performance, Kait is also an active educator, heading the Piano Performance program at the Los Angeles College of Music (LACM) in Pasadena, California.
