“Getaway Gateway”
A multi-award winner (1st prize  in the All-Soviet Union Student Competition, two New Names Awards, Honoured Artist Award granted by President Putin in 2002, and others), Yuri Goloubev was one of the best known musicians in Russia. A Moscow Conservatory graduate, he has been serving as Principal Bass of the famed Moscow Soloists Chamber Orchestra directed by Yuri Bashmet for nearly 13 years, when in 2004 he decided to move to Milan and dedicate himself entirely to his jazz career. This switch from performing at the world's most important classical venues (Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, Berliner Philarmonie, Royal Albert Hall and lots more) for many years with the likes of Rostropovich and Richter, Galway and Quasthoff and recording for such labels as EMI and SONY Classical (including one Grammy nomination), to reaching the same top level in jazz music performing at various important festivals as Montreux Jazz Festival, Umbria Jazz, London Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz, Festival of Perth, Jazzahead and many more, recording for such important labels as ACT and Universal made Yuri Goloubev a true rarity and exception in the music world. Some of his notable jazz collaborations include Bob James, Kenny Werner, Ralph Towner, Billy Kilson, Julian Arguelles, Paolo Fresu, Tim Garland, Klaus Gesing, Rosario Giuliani, Rick Margitza, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Enrico Pieranunzi, Gwilym Simcock and many others. Yuri's playing, the fluidity of which is often likened to a wind instrumentalist, is immediately recognisable and inimitable. His compositions and his instrumental abilities have been featured on nearly 100 CDs to date. In 2007 he joined the Jazz faculty of Centro Professione Musica in Milan, and in 2010 became Jazz Double Bass Professor at Trento State Conservatory. In 2015, Yuri Goloubev has been appointed a professor of jazz double bass and music theory at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff (United Kingdom), where he currently teaches – alongside with his extensive touring of Europe, Japan, South Africa, Australia and Asia. For his recent trio project, Yuri invited some of the most well known and sought after musicians in the UK – John Turville on piano and Asaf Sirkis on drums, with both of whom he has been previously collaborating in various line ups.    

John Turville has won multiple awards for his two trio albums including MOJO's #3 Jazz Album of the Year (2012), and 'Best Album' in the Parliamentary Awards 2011. He also won 'Best Instrumentalist' in the 2010 London Jazz Awards and the 2009 PRS Promoter's Choice Award, and was a semi-finalist in the Martial Solal Jazz Piano Concours in 2010. He has toured and recorded throughout Europe and the middle East with many renowned jazz and tango groups, including the Dave Binney/Julian Arguelles quintet, Tim Garland, the Tony Kofi/Alan Barnes Quintet, Karios 4tet, Asaf Sirkis Trio, Gilad Atzmon, Transtango, the London Tango Orchestra, Matt Ridley Quartet, Sabina Racheyeva, Andre Canniere, Maciek Pysz and Natacha Atlas.  He is the principal jazz piano tutor at Birmingham Conservatoire and has coached and adjudicated ensembles at the Guildhall and Trinity College.  

Asaf Sirkis, a native of Rehovot (Israel) moved over to London in 1999 and shortly became very well known for his work with Gilad Atzmon with whom he recorded 7 albums, including Exile, which won "Best CD of the Year" at the BBC Jazz Award 2003 while their band, The Orient House Ensemble was nominated for "Best Band" in 2004. Since 2006 Sirkis has been collaborating with reeds player and composer Tim Garland with whom he toured the world and recorded a number of albums. He has also worked with Larry Coryell, John Abercrombie, Gwilym Simcock, Kenny Wheeler, Gary Husband, Kit Downes, Andy Sheppard, Bob Sheppard, Mark Egan, Soft Machine, John Etheridge, Mark Wingfield, Nicolas Meier, David Binney, Norman Watt-Roy, Wilko Johnson, Maciek Pysz, Jeff Berlin and many more. On this occasions, in a few numbers Yuri Goloubev Trio will be joined by one of the most talented Swiss guitarists of the younger generation, Alessandro Pittini.
