Yuri Honing's single After All (CHALLENGE RECORDS 2018)

Great news for Yuri Honing. His single Aftel All, which was released in December 2017, has been played over 1.3 million times on Spotify. This makes it a true hit, a rarity in the jazz and classical music scene.

This week, the accompanying video clip was presented on YouTube and Facebook. After all, is there a better way to bring attention to a new release? This is all the result of Honing’s successful 2017 release Goldbrun, with his Acoustic Quartet (with Wolfert Brederode on the piano, Gulli Gudmundsson on the bass and Joost Lijbaart on drums). Goldbrun is a timeless musical document, using his capabilities to their full extent. Artistically, everything from his career is combined on this album: music in the broadest sense of the word, combined with different forms of art en even history.

Later this year, Honing will make himself heard again. From September 22nd, there will be an exhibition with Mariecke van der Linden in the Fundatie in Zwolle (The Netherlands). Also, a documentary about Honing is being produced, which will be released later this year. Furthermore, his album Goldbrun will be released on white vinyl, in the autumn of 2018
