Kelley Hunt

Kansas City piano-and-vocal powerhouse Kelley Hunt is returning to her favorite Minneapolis haunt to preview “The Beautiful Bones,” her album that drops May 20. There are lots of long-winded, gospel-tinged and Southern-saturated piano pieces with echoes of Etta James, Mavis Staples and other classic soul stirrers. The stand-outs include the rollicking, horn-seasoned boogie “When Love Is at the Wheel,” the gospel/blues/swing tune “I’ve Got a Good Feeling” and the pop-soul, Bonnie Raitt-evoking relationship-solver “Simplify.” You can sense that all this new material will be even more effective when Hunt cuts loose live.
