Music Beyond Border

The Netherlands with the Yuri Honing Trio FLASHBACK

At the reception of herring, gouda and bitterballen: (l to r) the Consul General, Radio 4 presenters Jonathan Douglas and Stacey Rodda, Dutch saxophonist Yuri Honing, Head of English Programme Service Bryan Curtis 音樂會前酒會留影(左至右):荷蘭駐港總領事、第四台節目主持杜格尊、盧迪思、荷蘭薩克管手漢、英文台台長柯文傑For more than 15 years the Yuri Honing Trio have been on the cutting edge of the Dutch music scene. These three musicians - Yuri Honing (saxophone), Tony Overwater (bass) and Joost Lijbaart (drums) - form one of the most internationally successful Dutch jazz groups of today. The audience in Studio One and listeners to the live broadcast on Radio 4 on the 14th of September know why. While touring in more than 40 countries around the world, the Yuri Honing Trio have built a unique personal style which embraces jazz together with world sounds. That night they crossed many borders. They played originals by Yuri Honing (A Sweet Surrender) and Tony Overwater (No Man’s Land), something by the Icelandic pop star Bjork (Isobel) and a Brazilian love song (Atras da Porta) by Chico Buarquel. There was music from Iraq by Munir Bashir (Baghdad) and a version of the Coleman Hawkins classic ‘Body & Soul’. It was the Consul General’s birthday and they played the traditional Dutch ‘Happy Birthday’ tune in his honour. They even had enough time for an encore of Sting’s ‘Walking on the Moon’. After the concert we were all mesmerized and walking on air.
