Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Yuri Honing had his first major success in 1996 with his album Star Tracks, featuring recordings of pop songs as an alternative to the American Songbook. He has performed or recorded with Carla Bley, Charlie Haden, Pat Metheny, Scott Colley, and Vince Mendoza, among others. A melancholic and moving album about different feelings of desire. Features beautiful melodies framed by jazz, pop, and classical music.
