Onetime Snarky Puppy member, Kait Dunton is set to issue trioKAIT 2 on May 11 through Real & Imagined Music.

The pianist and composer is joined in her trio by electric bassist Cooper Appelt and drummer Jake Reed. And on “OCD,” a track off the upcoming album, Dunton and her troupe explore some confluence of the classic piano trio, and space-aged funk and fusion.

The recording serves as a follow-up to the bandleader’s 2016 trioKait Casual, an album-length investigation of songs by No Doubt, John Coltrane, Erroll Garner and others, that found Dunton focused on acoustic piano.
