John Munson

John Munson is a Minneapolis-based bass player who's been a mainstay in the Twin Cities music scene for decades, starting out with the groups Trip Shakespeare and Semisonic. Most of his work now is with The New Standards, a jazz trio comprised of himself along with Chan Polling of the Suburbs and Steve Roehm. Coming up to Papa Charlie's in Lutsen for one of their annual holiday shows, he talks with Will Moore about arranging hit songs in a jazz style, making a holiday show spectacle, and possible returns to some of his various projects.
