The tale of young vocalist Paulien van Schaik and the laureate bass player/composer/producer Hein van de Geyn is one of years of friendship, of searching for the right way, of a double bass and a voice. They regularly called on one another; finding each other time after time in beautiful nights of music in which standards and ensemble were at the center. The musicians concluded that they had to record together. But this turned out to be not uncomplicated. After listening to the recordings they had made, the only difficulty immediately became the big problem: the chemistry between the two musicians who empathize so intuitively and flirt so could not be captured on tape. The emotion was missing. In the meantime, 'Bird' winner Hein van de Geyn started building his own theater at home. A spot where about 40 visitors can listen to music in an intimate setting. It turned out to be the perfect setting for live recordings that eventually ended up op the CD 'Tenderly - Live at Baseline Theater'. A small miracle, captured on three Sunday afternoons.
