Over het album
‘Heaven on my mind’ is the fifth album by the Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet and will be released in September 2023 for Challenge records. After the thematic albums 'True' (2012 inspired by Berlin and David Bowie). 'Desire' (2015, an instrumental opera about longing), 'Goldbrun' (2017 a homage to Europe and Honing's interest in European art music) and 'Bluebeard' (2020, a dark album mainly inspired by the 300-year-old fairy tale of the same name), there is now 'Heaven on my mind'.
An album on which the quartet's now decade-long existence undoubtedly pays off. Not only is the almost telepathic way the band members communicate with each other an important feature; this fifth quartet album also clearly shows Honing's love for Charles Lloyd, Pharoah Sanders and the freer acoustic jazz that emerged along with the 1960s hippie movement.
