Yuki Futami: Jazz piano phenom heads to New York

With technical mastery and a taste for vintage modern jazz, 25-year-old Yuki Futami is Japan’s belated answer to the late, great pianist Oscar Peterson. Before he heads off to New York’s Julliard, Metropolis got some insight on what a millennial Japanese sees in jazz, and the Yuki Futami Trio’s debut album, Banzai Oscar.
