Candy Dulfer, the Dutch superstar saxophonist, and her jazz band honor us at the Kulturhotel Guggenheim.
Candy is accompanied by an outstanding jazz formation consisting of some of the best jazz musicians in Holland: Bassist Harry Emmery (Archie Shepp, Louis van Dijk), trumpeter Jan van Duikeren (Caro Emerald, Gare du Nord), drummer Cyril Directie (Hans Dulfer, Benjamin Herman) and pianist and keyboardist Stephan Geusebroek (New Amsterdam Orchestra, Metropole Orchestra).
It's hard to believe that Candy Dulfer rose to fame over 29 years ago through her high-profile collaboration with Dave Stewart (with the worldwide #1 hit "Lily was here"). The announcement of the legendary Prince ("When I want Sax, I call Candy") in the video "Partyman" made the world take notice and notice the young, glamorous and talented saxophonist by his side.
Candy has been fortunate to work both in the studio and on stage with some of the greatest musicians, including Van Morrison, Maceo Parker, Sheila E., Mavis Staples, Lionel Richie, Beyoncé, Pink Floyd, Chaka Khan and Aretha Franklin, among many others.
Despite these high-profile collaborations, Candy focused mainly on her solo career, forming her own band at age 13 and touring the world ever since. Her first solo album, "Saxuality," earned her a Grammy Award nomination. Worldwide sales of her solo albums exceeded 2.5 million copies and she had several number 1 hits in the US.
