The New Standards Performing at Paradise on AM Minnesota Feb. 2
The New Standards rock and jazz trio of Minneapolis is coming to Faribault this weekend. They'll be performing at the Paradise Center For the Arts Feb. 6 at 7:30 p.m. Here's what The New York Post said about the group, "Jazz trio the New Standards takes pop and rock tunes, such as "All the Young Dudes," "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" and "The New Pollution," then strips them down and juices them back up with vocals, piano, bass and totally cool vibes. It's a bit quirky, but it works." They have filled theaters and clubs around the world. Trio member John Munson will join us on Monday's AM Minnesota program and I'm looking forward to it. Here are a couple other reviews of their work. "...unexpected and cool...This minimalist odd trio embarks on an intimately wrought travelogue of true standards and exquisitely rendered contemporary selections..." Amplifier Magazine and "All-in-all lovely...warm and subtle...leaving the listener hoping for future New Standards explorations through the wide world of pop music..." -amazon.com. Tune in 9:30 a.m. and I might have a little sampling of their sound for you.
