Jazz saxophonist Monik Nordine fronts trio playing Saturday in Cumberland

Renowned Island soprano and alto saxophonist Monik Nordine will be joined by pianist, Pablo Cardenas and bassist Bruce Meikle, for a jazz trio of exceptionally accomplished Vancouver Island artistry at Studio Live in Cumberland, Saturday, Dec. 3.

As one of B.C.’s top dynamic soprano and alto jazz saxophonists, Nordine has a powerful, lyrical, and impressive command of the saxophone. She has received several prestigious arts awards and she performed on the Juno-nominated Cruel Yet Fair, with the Hard Rubber Orchestra.

Nordine has shared the stage with award-winning elite musicians Michael Buble, Tommy Banks, Brad Turner and many other high profile musicians.

Nordine recorded a sublime self-titled jazz album with her group Departure that charted in the top five on CHLY 101.7 FM’s pop charts.

Nordine’s discography includes an exceptional album entitled, Not just to But Over the Moon, that shows off Nordine’s exemplary compositional and arranging prowess.

As a featured sideplayer, she recorded Blue Comedy with legendary jazz guitarist Pat Coleman and 3 Days in Winter with the Jon Miller Quartet. Nordine currently performs with the premier Island jazz ensembles the Victoria Jazz Orchestra and the Jon Miller Quartet.

Concert songs will highlight the greats such as Kenny Wheeler, Dave Brubeck, and Joe Henderson as well as impressive compositions written by Nordine.

She will be featured on vocals for several songs by composers such as Clarence Williams (1920s), Harold Arlen (1940s), Jule Styne and Paul Rice and a couple of other yet to be revealed happy surprises.  Tickets $15 advance at Bop City Records, Courtenay 250-338-6621, Rider’s Pizza, Cumberland 250-400-7433, Church Street Bakery, Comox 250-890-3200.
