The Jazz trio The New Standards riff off pop songs by Brittany Spears, Adam Ant and Kurt Weill, allowing a little nuttiness into the show while staying serious about their musicianship. The New Standards aren’t a cover band, but operate more on the model of jazz bands in the ’50s and ’60s that utilized popular songs of the day to riff off of. Started in 2005 as an off-shoot project between Minneapolis based musicians and friends Chan Poling (piano), Steve Roehm (vibes) and John Munson (bass), TNS has grown into a globe-spanning adventure, filling theaters and clubs around the world, spawning several CDs, videos, cartoons, dance/theater projects, and ancillary gewgaws that have charmed and delighted an ever-multiplying legion of faithful fans.
