About the album

Star Stracks is an anthology of West European pop music from the period 1974-1995. This music is part of the musical background of the trio; they grew up with it, sometimes liking it, and sometimes not. The album does not attempt to give a jazzy flavour to these pop tunes; the tunes themselves form the inspiration for the trio's interpretation. Each tune is taken back to the moment of its creation, and then drawn in the direction of the trio. The essence of the art of improvisation that we usually call jazz is being rediscovered by taking contemporary popular music as a staring point for improvisation. 

Yuri Honing, Tony Overwater and Joost Lijbaart all give their own side of the story, rephrasing their definition of jazz.

Zou de cd Star Tracks van Yuri Honing aub opnieuw uitgebracht kunnen worden? Ik heb de cd (illegaal) kunnen downloaden maar ben al tijden op zoek naar een officieel exemplaar. Dit is een klassieker !

My name is Antonio, my wife is one of your biggest fan, she has all your albums exept one, Star Tracks. I'm trying really hard to find the cd in stores here in Spain, USA or Holland but it is imposible for me to find it. I really appreciate if you can indicate me where i can buy. I know if i give it to her on Christmast, she is going to give me one of the best night ever, jajajaja.
