‘One of the most creative, fearless and alert saxophonists of the moment,’ wrote The Times. Yuri Honing is certainly the most important and influential soprano and tenor saxophonist in the Netherlands today. No matter what genre he chooses, he can tackle it. Honing has worked with international heavyweights like Pat Metheny, Charlie Haden, and Ibrahim Maalouf. Following his Edison Award, for his collaboration with pianist Paul Bley, Honing won the most important Dutch prize for jazz and improvised music in 2012, the Boy Edgar Prize. At the NN North Sea Jazz Festival, the Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet will perform work from their latest album: Goldbrun. On it Honing investigates profound themes like Europe, heroism, immigration, renaissance thinking, and the visual arts. For this album, Honing received his third Edison Jazz Award in 2018.
