Default dog barking (sort of) problem

I've got a Yorkie that likes to bark, at EVERYTHING. That is annoying
enough as it is, and I'm working on that with other methods. But one
thing that is really getting to me is something he does when we go
outside. When he sees other people, he goes crazy barking. I usually
just pick him up and pet him and do my best to say "hush" and calm him
down. However, when there's another dog out, he go crazy again, only
instead of barking, he makes this absolutely awful noise that is a
combination of a bark and perhaps whining. It sounds like he's in pain
almost. The other dog owner's look at me like I did something to him or
something. He's a generally very good dog, very friendly. He's been
around other dogs somewhat frequently, but perhaps not enough to pick up
great social skills. I suspect he is making this noise because he wants
free from his leash so he can run and play with the other dog. But the
noises he's making scare the other dog and owner away. Is there anything
I can do to reverse this behavior?
