Yumi Ito
Open 24/7

“I was drawn to jazz because I enjoyed the tensions, the 'weird' chords and the improvisation.”
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 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.

Yumi Ito has performed at numerous festivals including the Montreux Jazz Festival, Off Beat Festival Basel, Mlada Praha Festival, Cully Jazz Festival, Blue Balls Festival, Klang Basel Festival, Jazzwerkstatt Bern, Musig am Zürisee, Musibiasca Festival, with musicians and Bands such as Yves Theiler, Lisa Hoppe’s Band Ambush, Guillermo Klein Group, Yaron Herman Montreux Academy, Nils Petter Molvaer, Billy Test, Der Grosse Bär (Roberto Domeniconi/Flo Götte) and many more.
