Profile (English)

Yuki Futami is an award-winning jazz pianist from Japan whose sensitive touch and warm tone reflect that of his musical idol, the legendary Canadian jazz pianist Oscar Peterson. After winning 1st place in competitions such as the Yokohama Jazz Competition and Asakusa Jazz Contest in Japan with his energetic performances, Futami decided to relocate to New York City in 2013 in order to further his knowledge of jazz.He now lives in Boston as a student of Jerry Bergonzi at the New England Conservatory, refining his musical sense of excitement, agility and hard-hitting swing.

Futami was born on April 6th, 1987, in Saitama prefecture. At the age of three, his parents bought him his first keyboard; a-44 key Casio. Within a few months, Futami was enrolled in the YAMAHA music school where he learned how to play the piano and read music. When he was in junior high school, he played trombone in the local brass band. His experience of playing big band pieces with the brass band awakened his interest in jazz. Soon after graduating high school, Futami decided to pursue a career as a professional jazz pianist. In addition to the many great jazz pianists of the 20th century, he is also influenced by the current contemporary jazz scene in New York City. His goal is to assimilate all these influences into a personal style of his own. It is a life-long journey from which he learns everyday.
