Dutch saxophonist Candy Dulfer continues to push boundaries with the release of her new album ‘Together’. The album was inspired by all that’s great in jazz, disco, soul, dance and r&b, but is also a contemporary interpretation of what’s happening in music and the world today. Candy created a deeply personal and unique blend of musical genres & influences, bound together by her trademark sound, showcasing her extreme versatility. She is headlining the Blue Note Jazz Festival presenting her new album.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 26 years since Candy Dulfer rose to fame with her high-profile collaborations with Dave Stewart (the worldwide number 1 smash “Lily was here”) and of course the legendary Prince, whose tongue-in-cheek recommendation (“When I want sax, I call Candy”) in the “Partyman” video made the world sit up and notice the young, glamorous and talented sax player at his side. Their collaboration continued over the years with many studio sessions, TV show appearances, award show performances (including the Grammy Awards), and concert tours around the globe, including Candy joining Prince’s NPG band as a permanent member for his record-shattering Musicology tour & album.

Candy has been fortunate to work – both in the studio and on stage – with some of the biggest names in music, including Van Morrison, Maceo Parker, Sheila E., Mavis Staples, Lionel Richie, Beyonce, Pink Floyd, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, and many others.
