Funked Up!

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Michael G. Nastos
Candy Dulfer's identity as a contemporary jazz musician has not wavered since she entered the professional music arena. A sex kitten on the outside and a very talented alto saxophonist whose sound is directly derived from David Sanborn 30 years past tense, the image-driven Dulfer continues on her path toward making music that is consistent, and at the very least competent. Funked Up! does not stray at all from the more R&B-infused sound she employs, and there are distinct futuristic Euro-dance elements like robotic voices, space soul, and drum machines that up the ante.

All Music Guide - Michael G. Nastos
Candy Dulfer's identity as a contemporary jazz musician has not wavered since she entered the professional music arena. A sex kitten on the outside and a very talented alto saxophonist whose sound is directly derived from David Sanborn 30 years past tense, the image-driven Dulfer continues on her path toward making music that is consistent, and at the very least competent. Funked Up! does not stray at all from the more R&B-infused sound she employs, and there are distinct futuristic Euro-dance elements like robotic voices, space soul, and drum machines that up the ante. Dulfer employs a big-band sound with handclaps during "First in Line," while a much hipper chart for the horns crops up on the authentic R&B-flavored "Be Cool." The introductory lyric line of "My Funk" (emphasizing "it's not your funk") talks self-indulgently about creatin' when it's really all about producin'. The remainder of the music ranges from upbeat Euro-disco to Latin dance on "Step Up," the deliberate mechanical rhythms of "Don't Go," the retro party tune "Finger Poppin'," and the spaced-out rave-up "Roppongi Panic." The slow funk of "Bliss 2 This" features an intimate vocal late-night foreplay sex tape, while the straight funk-pop tune "CD 101.9" samples a radio DJ from the station calling Dulfer dynamic on-air. The band does stretch a bit on the slowed lovers reggae "True & Tender" and the deeper bass and rhythm-infused "Still I Love You."

    Candy is the best

    As usual Candy is on top of her game as one the best sax players in the world. The sound quality is super and every note is right on.
