YURI HONING QUARTET
Yuri Honing-tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, Frank Moebus-guitar, Joost Lijbaart-drums, Tony Overwater-bas guitar, double bass, el. viola da gamba
Whether he reinvents existing pop songs or makes a connection with the Arab tradition, you will always hear intelligence, a powerful imagination and a stately tenor sound. In this new line up the groove is highlighted by extra percussion and guitarist Frank Möbus (from German avant-garde ensemble Der Rote Bereich) who is not afraid of a little rough distortion. The backbone of the band still exists of Honings musical brothers Lijbaart and Overwater of which the latter will also plug in.
