Event Description

The Monik Nordine Trio announces the release of their CD The Old-New Town in October and Novemeber, 2017. The album features Monik Nordine on alto saxophone and vocals as well as band mates Brent Jarvis and Bruce Meikle for a jazz trio of exceptional artistry. The album is dedicated to the memory of Canadian composer and pianist Jan Jarczyk who’s composition “The Old-New Town” is the title track, as well as featuring new compositions by Nordine.

Nordine's compositions on The Old New Town highlight a writing approach that is thoughtful and lyrical. There is a nod to the American Songbook with songs based on standards such as “All the Things You Are” by Jerome Kern and “I Fall In Love Too Easily” by Jule Styne. The track “Yin and Yang”, is a suite in the style of John Coltrane based simultaneously on a Hindu hymn and the Gil Evans composition “La Nevada”. As one of BC’s top 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.
