Hōryū-ji or else Learning Temple of the Flourishing Law is one of the powerful Seven Great Buddhist Temples in Japan. Hōryū-ji has entasis, in architecture, the application of a convex curve to a surface for aesthetic purposes. It also serves an engineering function regarding strength, the key word of this collaboration that brought together Sakata, Yermenoglou, Di Domenico and Damianidis in a 2 days live concert meeting in Duende jazz club at Thessaloniki in May 2018. The record is the outcome of the second day, 50 minutes of pure improvisation exactly as it happened, capturing the magic of the moment, the essence of free improvisation. A great memory of intense, free, open spiritual music without boundaries.
