Led by Drew Tucker, The New Standard is changing the way you think of the vibraphone. Bringing style and soul to radio classics and the music you grew up with, The New Standard is Jazz and old school hip-hop with a touch of top 40. It's the heart of Miles Davis wrapped in the groove of Prince & J Dilla. Quite simply, The New Standard is really good music!
