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.

1. Dance
2. Omara's Dance
3. Longin' For The Funk
4. Lost And Gone
5. I'll Be Released

7. Sax-A-Go-Go
8. Ooh Let's Go

1998 Bonus Performance:

4.0 out of 5 stars 3-Star feature surpassed by a 5-Star bonus performance February 10, 2006
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
By CMCapo
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Swinging Virtuosos February 7, 2010
One of the best concert recordings I have seen/heard in content and production - Gary and Makoto are completely in sync and their collaboration is playful, dynamic, and full of breathtaking moments!

3.0 out of 5 stars pointless frenetic editing June 14, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Frenetic editing hurts these things so often. Why do they let them do it? What is the point? This is supposed to be a jazz/funk concert, as opposed to a punk/rock why allow this kind of crazy, hurried/harried
cutting back and forth from camera to camera to camera???

Makes no sense.
In the future, can you PLEASE leave the camera on a performer for longer than THREE SECONDS? Is that too much to ask?

Sound not right/clear between numbers. Can't figure out/understand what Candy is saying at all.

Look, I love Candy Dulfer; she is clearly a talented sax player (could have done with her singing less, by the way), but her band is so damn loud that you can hardly make-out her own playing. Can't this sound "problem" be solved? Yes, her band is quite good, but I mainly bought this to be able to hear (AND SEE) HER PLAY.

As someone else stated, the bonus tracks are better than the main concert.

Finally, do I regret buying this DVD? Nope, because I dig the chick (in spite of the above objections.)
