“Cancelled” Monik Nordine
March 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm$15
Saltspring Island based sax player Monik Nordine has graced our stage a number of times over the years. Whether playing in her own quartet, as a member of many other jazz combos or conducting the Victoria Jazz Orchestra, Monik keeps a very busy schedule. Juno nominated, she has a powerful, lyrical, and impressive command of the saxophone and has received several prestigious arts awards. She has recorded with John Korsrud’s Hard Rubber Orchestra and has also toured with Hugh Fraser’s band VEJI. Monik plays alto and soprano saxophone and occasionally sings with her ensembles. Now leading “The Monik Nordine Quartet”, Monik and her group are featuring the compositions of Canadian jazz artists such as Oscar Peterson, Joni Mitchell, KD Lang, Sonny Greenwich, Jan Jarczyk, Kenny Wheeler, Hugh Fraser, Alan Matheson, Greg Bush and of course their own works in a project called “The Great Canadian Songbook”. The aim of this project is to document as many retrospective and current Canadian compositions as possible with the goal of creating a body of work that we can call our own. Joining Monik for this special project is Rob Cheramy (guitar) and David Emery (drums). Each of these musicians maintains a busy performing and touring schedule in BC and elsewhere: Rob and Monik have recorded with The Jon Miller Quartet and David Emery plays drums with The Victoria Jazz Orchestra and performs regularly with The Tom Vickery Trio at Hermann’s Jazz Club
