L.A. based pianist Kait Dunton has been around awhile but just in the past few years has begun to get the recognition she deserves. Jazz.com voted her one of the “10 Future Jazz Stars” in 2012 and her first CD Real and Imagined got rave reviews from critics who called it “a stunning showcase of a jazz newcomer holding her own.” Dunton appeared at the 2014 Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival as part of a salute to the great Marian McPartland.
