Monik Nordine will be performing as part of her trio tonight at the Sidney Friday Night Jazz Series.

The Monik Nordine Trio will be performing tonight, playing some jazz standards and blues, pieces the jazz crowd will definitely know.

The trio is the latest group of performers to hit the stage at St. Paul’s United Church for the new Sidney Friday Night Jazz Series

The trio consists of Pablo Cardenas, Bruce Meikle and Monik Nordine.

“I just formed the trio a few months ago because I thought … I’d like to have my own trio and do the songs that I like to do in a more intimate presentation,” said Nordine who is from Salt Spring Island.

The members of the trio have played in many different groups before but Nordine thought it would be nice to have a more intimate setting, as she usually plays in larger groups or back up bands.

“So its just more of an intimate setting where we can just showcase the songs and have more rapport with the audience really.”

Nordine directs the Victoria Jazz Orchestra and performs regularly at Hermann’s Jazz Club in Victoria. She has performed with many people including Rob McConnell, Guido Basso and Michael Buble.

She said the trio will be performing around Victoria until they get a recording finished.

She added she hopes to put out an album with the group in the fall.

Nordine has a couple gigs booked with the trio until June.

Through the summer she will be playing with various other groups and will also be in the upcoming Jazz Festival in Victoria in the summer.

The Monik Nordine Trio performance begins tonight at 7 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Church in Sidney.

A donation of $10 at the door is suggested.
