StLJN Saturday Video Showcase:
A taste of Candy

If StLJN's visitor logs for the past six weeks are any indication, there's a lot of reader interest in saxophonist Candy Dulfer's upcoming St. Louis performance next Saturday, May 21 at The Pageant. After checking out some online videos of various Dulfer shows, it's not hard to understand why. Her music may not be particularly innovative or thought-provoking, but assuming you like this sort of thing to begin with, Dulfer's bluesy alto sax, funk grooves, and enthusiastic performances do make for an entertaining mix.

So, without further ado, today we present four videos of Candy Dulfer live, starting up above with an undated clip of her version of Average White Band's "Pick Up The Pieces." Down below, you can see Dulfer playing "On and On" with the Dutch all-star group Brothers In Music. Below that, there are two clips from 2009 featuring Dulfer with her own band, assaying a chill-out groove on "Still I Love You" and bringing a bit of hip-hop into "My Funk."
