The New Standards
Rescheduled from 9/14/17
Twin Cities musicians and raconteurs Chan Poling (The Suburbs) on piano, bassist John Munson (Trip Shakespeare, Semisonic), and Steve Roehm (Billygoat, Electropolis) on vibraphone— formed The New Standards in 2005 to play and sing their favorite songs in a stripped-down, acoustic setting. Just as mid-century American jazz musicians reimagined “old standards,” the trio creates jazz arrangements of recognizable hits and deep tracks alike, drawn from diverse musical genres ranging from pop, glam and soul, to rock and roll, including songs from Dan Hicks to David Byrne, Bowie to Beck. Their music makes room for solos and arrangements with the freedom of jazz, and yet never fully abandons the modest soul of pop and rock.
