"On October 15th, 2017, after their performance as members of the Yosuke Yamashita Special Quartet at OCT-LOFT Jazz Festival, Shinpei Ruike, Hiroaki Mizutani and Shinnosuke Takahashi were joined by two of China’s fearless avant-garde improvisers, Lao Dan and Deng Boyu, at the Old Heaven bookstore. This jam session, simultaneously pleasurable and mind-blowing, is a definite highlight of the long-standing tradition of the bookstore improvisations during each year’s OCT-LOFT Jazz Festival and Tomorrow Festival."
