Ajna is a creative, modern jazz trio based in Victoria BC. Their varied repertoire and unique interpretations of classic standards and lesser known jazz compositions appeal to a wide range of audiences. Amy Nold’s sultry, soulful vocals and Jonnie Bridgman’s virtuosic sax playing trade off to express their favourite melodies. Amy’s lush harmonies and punctuating rhythmic drive on the piano propels the music forward while Nick Mintenko’s unfaltering upright bass playing grounds the group. Their music is always carefully selected to suit each performance and arrangements are carefully crafted to respect the composer and capture the essence of the composition while allowing the musician’s creativity to flow. Through delicate ballads, passionate latin numbers and blazing bebop, communication and groove are never compromised.
Ajna is currently available to play clubs, restaurants, festivals and public or private events in Victoria and the surrounding communities.
