Monik Nordine Quartet

Saxophonist Monik Nordine has received several prestigious arts awards including a Juno Award nomination for her work on the album Cruel Yet Fair (1997) with John Korsrud’s Hard Rubber Orchestra and has toured with Hugh Fraser’s band VEJI. Joined by Rob Cheramy on guitar, Phill Albert on bass and Miles Fuller on drums, The Monik Nordine Quartet is heavily invested in Canadiana from Sonny Greenwich to Oscar Peterson and band originals, and each member is a composer in their own right. Nordine and Cheramy have worked together for many years and Phill Albert recorded with her on the album Departures (2010). Miles Fuller is new to the scene and a fresh voice on jazz drums and will have a long career starting in Victoria, BC

“ ... solid performance and writing chops.”
