Masao Yagi

Yagi Masao, November 14, 1932 – March 4 1991 was a Japanese pianist who fell in love with American jazz during the Japanese enthusiasm for it. Robin D. G. Kelley writes that Thelonious Monk’s greatest champion in Japan before 1963’s inaugural tour was not a critic, but a pianist named Yagi Masayo. From Wikipedia
