NOW

The jury of the VPRO/Boy Edgar Award 2012 presented this year's award to Yuri Honing (saxophonist, composer and band leader). He has all qualities that are needed to receive this, the most important Dutch jazz award. Yuri Honing is an instrumentalist who has not only done many things, but he has especially done many different things. He has not committed to one specific style or movement, but instead he has always looked for possibilities that go beyond borders with possibilities to connect different worlds. Yuri Honing is always in search of collaborations with musicians from various styles such as Arabian music, pop, classic and dance. Jazz however, always remains his point of reference in which he finds a creative and fertile basis.

The beginning of Honing's career was marked by the Yuri Honing Trio, formed in 1990 with bassist Tony Overwater and drummer Joost Lijbaart. In 2002 he won an Edison Award (Dutch Grammy). Currently he divides his attention between two groups: Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet and his electric Wired Paradise.

According to Ian Patterson of 'All About Jazz', "Wired Paradise produces one of the best live shows in the world today!"

來自荷蘭,身兼色士風樂手、作曲家及樂團領手的漢寧,剛剛奪得荷蘭「2012愛加爵士大獎」。漢寧不斷探索世界其他音樂文化,同時又注入非凡創意,備受各方讚賞。至今,他專注於領導兩支樂隊,分別是「漢寧原聲四重奏」和電子樂隊「天堂」。
