Yuri Goloubev - Doublebass

In February of 2016 Yumi Ito's first CD „Intertwined“, that she recorded with the alto saxophonist Gabriel Dalvit, the pianist Yves Theiler and the double bassist Yuri Goloubev in London, will be released. On her debut album the 24-year-old Swiss vocalist with Japanese and Polish roots sets to sound her personal approach to the jazz tradition. Raised in a family of musicians, fostered early on in classical singing and piano playing, it seemed natural to Yumi Ito to interpret the jazz standards on this CD in an intimate chamber music atmosphere without drums. In this way the band weaves the melodies and chords into a harmonious ensemble, subtly working with nuanced timbres in voice and instrument. Most of all, the sound pattern lives on the musician's strong improvisations and the depth with which the lyrics handled.
