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 are Brent Jarvis (piano), Rob Johnson (bass) and David Emery (drums). Each of these musicians maintains a busy performing and touring schedule in BC and elsewhere: Brent and Monik have recorded two albums together - Departure Jazz and The Old-New Town, David Emery plays drums with The Victoria Jazz Orchestra and Rob Johnson performs regularly with The Tom Vickery Trio at Hermanns Jazz Club.
