Alto saxophonist Candy Dulfer was raised in a family heavily involved in the Dutch jazz scene. The daughter of Hans Dulfer, a respected jazz tenor saxophonist, she listened to and studied the recordings of Sonny Rollins, Coleman Hawkins, and Dexter Gordon. She was joining bands before she was a teenager, and appearances with Prince led to session work with Eurythmics guitarist/producer Dave Stewart (who gave Dulfer a credit on the Top Ten British hit "Lily Was Here"). Her 1990 debut Saxuality featured her funky alto sax stylings, and it caught on with fans of contemporary jazz. During the rest of the '90s and into the 21st century, she continued to synthesize classic R&B, blues, pop, and jazz in her own unique, creative ways. ~ Richard Skelly
