Editorial Reviews

CANDY DULFER is one of the most in-demand saxophone players in the world. She has combined a highly-successful solo career with guest spots for a host of musical greats, including VAN MORRISON, BLONDIE, ARETHA FRANKLIN, PINK FLOYD, DAVE STEWART (with whom she had the UK top 10 hit Lily Was Here) and, perhaps most notably, PRINCE, who has memorably said "When I want sax, I send for Candy."

Candy Dulfer has played at Montreux on several occasions with her band FUNKY STUFF. This DVD focuses on her concert from 2002, which Candy believes is her finest performance there.

This concert is being simultaneously released on CD by Eagle Records (ER 20076-2). There are three tracks exclusive to the CD and four exclusive to the DVD.

Tracklisting:
1. Dance
2. Omara's Dance
3. Longin' For The Funk
4. Lost And Gone
5. I'll Be Released
6. Do Watchu Like
7. Sax-A-Go-Go
8. Ooh Let's Go

1998 Bonus Performance:
1. Saxy Mood
2. For The Love Of You
3. Lily Was Here
4. Jamming
5. I Can't Make You Love Me

4.0 out of 5 stars 3-Star feature surpassed by a 5-Star bonus performance February 10, 2006
Format:DVD
This is essentially a compilation of two Candy Dulfer appearances at the Montreaux Jazz Festival: the featured show from July of 2002, and the bonus performance from July of 1998. Both took place at the famed Auditorium Stravinsky and were filmed for television. I consider Candy to be the funkiest white chick on the planet, taking over that distinction from Teena Marie, and her jammin' sax tunes have impressed me since "Sax-A-Go-Go" came out in 1993. This is a very good DVD for Candy fans or those who appreciate funky sax-oriented jazz (who will likely enjoy the bonus performance better) although, as with most "Jazz Fest" events, the artists don't get to spend very much time on-stage.

Sorry to say, I wasn't so impressed with the 2002 portion of this DVD, mainly because Candy's music leaned toward vocal-oriented tunes as opposed to instrumentals which highlight her sax as the voice. As for the vocalizing, Candy was pretty good, and Monique Baker added a complementary soulful edge. Another nice dimension was the excellent vocal dexterity of keyboardist Roger Happel (sort of a less-boyish version of Justin Timberlake), but his singing was a rare respite from the rest of the "oh-oh-oh-yeah" or "gimme-the-funk" repetition (mildly annoying). Candy's band, the seven-member Funky Stuff, is pretty tight throughout, although the sound mixing is off at times, rendering Peter Lieberom's sax and Ulco Bed's guitar a little thin. My favorite numbers were "Longin' For the Funk" and "Sax-A-Go-Go," and the encore number rocked. [The eight tracks have a running time of 54 minutes]

The 1998 performance: BETTER IN EVERY WAY (both music and production value) and I'm guessing that this wasn't the feature because it was a bit shorter and took place four years before the other one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Candy is great but mixed bag on mixing November 29, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Dutch saxophonist and bandleader Candy Dulfer since the early 90s but I've never seen her live. This purchase was an attempt to at least get a taste of what I've missed all these years. While it's good and I'm certainly happy I bought it, there are a few frustrations.

The marquee set is marred by some instruments being virtually impossible to hear and editing that would make a mongoose exhausted. And on some tunes the vocalists (including Candy) are exhorting the crowd so incessantly that you can hardly enjoy the songs. You'd think they were playing to a graveyard with all the effort they put into shouting "C'mon, y'all!", "Put yo' hands together!", and "Give it up!" every few seconds.

As others have noted, the bonus set is actually the superior of the two. The mix levels are much more balanced, the video editing is less frenetic, and (for the most part) they just PLAY. And, man, are they good. Candy's jazz/funk fusion is just flat out fun and this set contains not a single weak number. The addition of an extended guitar solo and the restoration of the vocal to her cover of Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me" seemed risky at first but ended up being absolutely fantastic. And Candy's blazing duel with the drummer on "Pick Up the Pieces" brought the house down.

Full disclosure: I'm a guy. That means there's another bonus feature to seeing a Candy DVD. SEEING Candy! That's exquisite in both performances. I'll leave it at that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great concert, Great artist, Great music January 14, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Candy Dulfer looks great, and sounds even better. She can blow her horn like nobody's business, not to mention she can sing really well too.

When she plays jazz, she is among the best on the alto. She does seem to like to funk out a lot, and for a white gal, she can outfunk plenty of folk. Very elegant and funky, she is sure to please.

The mixing of the audio on the first portion of the disk is as some have pointed out, kind of weak and uneven. But the emotion and motion of the band helps make up for it.

The archival portion shows her more jazzy side and the sax is more predominant.

A tasty treat, and a good price as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars CJC77BassMan August 19, 2007

A must have for that fresh, Jazz / Funk sound. Candy Dulfer is a truly talented professional musician. Her sax playing is definitely top of the line. Hopefully she stays solo with her own band, she's really at that level. Her sax solo's sound like bass groves in the pocket to me. Which is really special to me. Good audio and visual concert to kick back and watch. "Pick up the pieeeeces, ya'll" is definitely the highlight. The sax and drum jam is hot! Great band and solo's. Time to see her live!

3.0 out of 5 stars Candy CORN October 19, 2006
By DMan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While this gorgeous woman can play a mean sax, she and her band lack true soul. They come off as technical robots attempting to be funky. There are far better sax players in this genre. They are akin to a rich kid raised in the Hamptons TRYING to be a funky soul brother from Philly. It just lacks integrity. My advice, look to other sax players. Even though this was recorded in 2002 it comes off as CORNY not FUNKY. "Wave your hands from left to right" come on...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sax-A-Go Go March 21, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have not had the opportunity to watch this DVD. I am a saxophone lover. My all time favorite saxophonist is Jr Walker. The first CD I purchased by Candy Dulfer was "Sax-A-Go Go" . I now have seven of Candy's CDs. Her music is so good. I don't have to hear a single song to make a purchase. Hearing her is GOOD. To hear and see her doing her thing has to be GREAT.
