Candy Dulfer is an international star holding a Dutch passport. She is the daughter of the famed tenor saxophone player Hans Dulfer; at an early age, she developed into a gifted soloist and band leader. She scored her first great hit with Lily Was Here that she recorded with Eurythmics front man Dave Stewart. She was also asked by pop stars like Prince and Van Morrison to join their world tours and perform on their records. As a band leader, she has recorded ten albums since 1990. Her latest double album, Funked Up & Chilled Out, was released last summer and it shows exactly why Dulfer receives so much international acclaim. Her playing is super funky and she always assembles a top-notch line-up. Make sure you don’t miss this concert!
“Gorgeous playing”, writes the New York Post. “One of the most distinctive sounds in jazz”, raves the London Evening Standard. The praise goes on and on for Puerto Rico-born saxophonist David Sánchez. He has been nominated for 5 Grammy® Awards, and his album Coral won the Latin Grammy for Best Instrumental Album in 2005. Sánchez fuses his fierce, straight ahead jazz sound with African, Afro-Cuban and Caribbean infuences and has played with Paquito D’Rivera, Dizzy Gillespie, Pat Metheny and many others.
