On the occasion of JazzLab Series and W.E.R.F. Records’ 25th birthday, Hendrik was asked to launch a new project in 2018. He gathered his personal dream team and founded ‘warm bad’, a seven-headed ensemble featuring Sam Comerford (saxophone), Vitja Pauwels (guitar), Benjamin Sauzerau (guitar), Marco Giongrandi (guitar), Soet Kempeneer (bass), Casper Van De Velde (drums) and Hendrik Lasure himself on piano and vocals.
Together they dove into the studio of friend and producer Koen Gisen to record a dozen new tracks, one by one composed by Lasure. The repertoire hovers somewhere between jazz, minimalism and dream pop. Added bonus: Hendrik reveals himself as a singer for the first time. In doing so he is supported by An Pierlé , who contributed the backing vocals to the single ‘Jonas’. Not bad for a debutant singer!
