This 21-piece big band fuses jazz and flamenco. Special guest: Carles Benavent, renowned bass guitarist from Paco de Lucia’s Sextet and Chick Corea’s Flamenco Heart.

The bass is a central theme for this year’s edition of the Red Light Jazz Festival, which originated in the Red Light District and will now collaborate with Conservatorium van Amsterdam and the BIMHUIS. Especially for this occasion the BvR Flamenco Big Band welcomes a remarkable guest: Spanish bass guitarist Carles Benavent. Together with legendary flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucía and band he developed a new flamenco language, which connected with prevalent jazz and fusion styles. During his fruitful career, Carles collaborated with, among others, Camarón de la Isla and Chick Corea.

The BvR Flamenco Big Band is a unique phenomenon, a 21-piece jazz ensemble conceived around a core of flamenco protagonists. The band was founded by Hispano-Dutch saxophonist Bernard van Rossum. He takes flamenco harmonies and rhythms to another level through colorful compositions and orchestrations. The band previously collaborated with harmonica virtuoso Antonio Serrano and vocalist David de Jacoba, who both come from Paco de Lucía’s band as well.

‘I heard some new territory that night. Modern, innovative, and highly skillful compositions that did not diminish in any way the soul of flamenco’ (Kenny Werner on BvR Flamenco Big Band).

Rayn steps in the future, leaving footsteps from his debut-album A creation from the soul. What a ride it was. Rayn is now working on a follow-up titled Back II Business which will be released world wide, digital & physical, in 2019. Back II Business will contain 10 tracks of 70’s/80’s groove and dance music. It’s a mixture of different soul and funk flavors melted together to form one solid foundation and story. The voice and the lyrics of Rayn are filled with emotion.

Rayn’s music is inspired by legends from the pas, records he listened to in his youth. This inspiration moved him in the right direction to find his groove and melodies. The lyrics of every song are autobiographic.

“People say I’m old-school but I believe an album is a full story which you only will understand and feel if you listen to all songs from the beginning until the end. Especially when the artist writes and creates his own art. So press play and enjoy the ride!”

Rayn wrote lyrics, produced, engineered, edited, programmed, recorded percussion keyboard synths and arranged all the songs, one by one, assisted by a talented team of people. Rayn worked with some of the finest international musicians in his network, including names that worked on his first album. One of them is guitarist Lorijn von Piekartz, who is a regular player at the Bulldog Hotel with his brother Daniel. Lorrijn is also known as the guitarist in the band of Dutch singer MAAN. Lorijn is also guitarist of the band of The Voice of Holland.

Free admission

The sound of Mosquito can best be described as a combination of Funk, R&B, Reggae, Country and Latin Jazz, in which the tight harmonious singing of the band is central.

The Amsterdam band was founded in 2004 by singer/guitarist Theo "Mosquito" Taihitu and drummer/singer Albert "Buddy" la Fonteine. After several changes in the formation, Mosquito really took shape in 2007 when the missing link presented itself: the Venezuelan metal bassist / singer José Gregorio Rangel Abreu, known from the band LABERINTO. By combining the different musical backgrounds of the band members, their passion for tequila and rum, Mosquito has meanwhile developed a style and sound of its own that makes you want to dance.

During Red Light Jazz 2019, Mosquito treats the public on a musical journey that appeals to the imagination, with exhilarating Caribbean rhythms and hilarious but sometimes heart-breaking stories. Always with a wink and a great sense of humor.

Tijs Klaassen is a double bass player and composer who grew up within the Amsterdam jazz scene. During the last four months of 2017, he studied in Philadelphia and New York with greats such as Ron Carter, Ben Street and David Wong. Although all that Tijs learned during his studies in US was of enormous importance to him, it made him realize just how much he values his European roots.

Tijs therefore strives to naturally combine the timbre and concepts of the great European composers from the 20th century with those of modern jazz musicians. This objective led him to form his own quintet with like-minded musicians. The band members were not only brought together because of their excellent playing, but also because all are composers themselves. Each musician therefore approaches the pieces as a performer as well as a co-writer. The end result is a constantly evolving group sound that reflects both European classical music and the energy of the contemporary American jazz scene.

The band members all belong to the new generation of Amsterdam jazz musicians who are very active within the Dutch jazz scene.

Like the South-American tyranni bird that can both sing and scream, whistle and shriek, this “flock” creates wonderful soundscapes of noises and beauty. They don’t choose between electronic or acoustic, synths or woodwinds. Within this contrast is harmony, and within disparity is unity.

The Amsterdam-based Tyranni Flock consists of award-winning young musicians, playing fresh, lyrical and exciting new music. All five coming from different musical backgrounds, with the uncommon combination of EWI, vocoder and flutes, creating one fluid sound. Their debut EP was released in 2018 followed by numerous shows in the Netherlands. During this tour they reached the semi-finals of the Dutch Jazz Competition 2018. In the early summer of 2019 the first single will be released in preparation of EP number 2 in the fall.

Quotes:
“Strong compositions, innovative and tight, beautiful ensemble-playing and interesting soloists (...) Live a true experience.”
Co de Kloet (Jazzism/NPO Soul & Jazz)

“With a fusion sound, referring to the jazzrock of the 70’s, that fits today’s time. Hip, groovy, nerdy and very danceable. Genre borders do not apply, neither do cliches."
Matthilde Löffler (JazzHalo)

DJ MAESTRO

Martijn Barkhuis a.k.a. DJ Maestro (1970) clearly knows the meaning of great sounds. He embraces an enormous variety of styles: a quick look into his massive music collection and you’ll find John Coltrane next to Cerrone, Nina Simone next to Fela Kuti, or, even better, Masters at Work next to Chet Baker. Hear him spin and you’ll understand why he is called DJ Maestro.

Martijn has a broad musical background. Raised in a musical family, he started playing the violin at an early age. After working successfully with different orchestras during his youth, his parents encouraged him to keep playing. But while studying Musicology at the University of Utrecht, Martijn developed new passions: jazz and radio. This saw him trading his violin for a job at national Jazz Radio.

Meanwhile, he discovered the party scene and fell in love once again: in love with the beats, in love with the life style, in love with the late nights and early mornings. Through never-ending support of one of Holland’s biggest deejays, Eddy de Clercq, Martijn soon stood in front of major crowds in Amsterdam-based clubs such as Roxy, Escape and Paradiso.

His love for classical, jazz and club music resulted in the crazy yet amazing musical phenomenon of DJ Maestro.

Maestro released 9 platinum-award albums for Blue Note records, 2 albums for Verve/Universal, played all 5 continents, just signed at Bethlehem Records, got his house in order and became a father. The only thing that didn’t change was his love for JAZZ.


JONAS HELLBORG

Swedish bass player Jonas Hellborg began his music career in 1976 in his home country touring with local rock acts. He was spotted by percussionist Reebop Kwaku Baah in a small club in Stockholm 1979 and he moved to London for a year to work with Reebop on different projects. He played the Montreux Jazz festival in Switzerland in 1981 where he met Michael Brecker who introduced him to John McLaughlin, Billy Cobham and other fusion stars. He was asked to join McLaughlin's reformed Mahavishnu Orchestra in 1983. Hellborg stayed with McLaughlin until 1988, touring and recording with Mahavishnu Orchestra. He also did several duet tours with McLaughlin during this time.

In 1986 and 1987 Jonas joined a live-project featuring Ginger Baker on drums and Bernie Worrell on keyboards.

In 1988 Hellborg moved to New York and started his own band which first included keyboardist Aydin Esen and drummer Kenwood Dennard, and later the Johansson Brothers; Jens on keyboards and Anders on drums. Jonas started a recording studio together with producer/bassist Bill Laswell called Greenpoint Studios. They recorded a multitude of records there until early 1993, including The Word with Tony Williams, Octave of the Holy Innocents with Mike Shrieve and Buckethead, Material's Hallucination Engine, and E with the Johansson Brothers.

In 1993 Jonas sold his part in the studio to Laswell and resettled in Paris, France. The following year he teamed up with guitarist Shawn Lane, a cooperation that would last nine years. The first record was Abstract Logic with Ginger Baker's son Kofi on drums; this was followed by Michael Shrieve's Two Doors. By the third record they were joined by drummer Jeff Sipe and embarked on a long stretch that produced four records and a lot of touring between 1995 and 1997.

In 1998 Hellborg met percussionist V. Selvaganesh at a Zakir Hussain concert in Paris. The two formed a long lasting musical partnership that has been ongoing since then. To start with, Selvaganesh joined Hellborg in duets and in different "classical" settings Hellborg was working on at the time. Later a group was formed, first in trio with Lane, then a quintet including Selvaganesh's 2 brothers V. Umashankar and V. Umamahesh. Two CDs and a DVD were produced with this group. After Shawn Lane's death in 2003, Hellborg has continued to explore amalgamations of Indian and Western music, working with Indian masters as Debashish Bhattacharya, Niladri Kumar, Vikku Vinayakram, Tanmoy Bose and U. Shrinivas. He has also started a new metal-fusion project with guitarist Mattias IA Eklundh called Art Metal.

Hellborg founded his own record label Day Eight Music (D.E.M.) in 1979 releasing his first solo bass record The Bassic Thing – an early showcase of his pioneering chordal, and for the time very advanced, slapping approaches. It was the first LP ever to feature solely bass guitar. With the move to the US, a new entity was formed, called Bardo Music, that took over the responsibilities of Hellborg's output, now counting around 40 releases.

Through the years Hellborg has collaborated with John McLaughlin, Ustad Sultan Khan, Fazal Qureshi, Bill Laswell, Shawn Lane, Jens Johansson, Anders Johansson, Ginger Baker, Michael Shrieve, V. Selvaganesh, Jeff Sipe, Mattias IA Eklundh, Public Image Ltd, Buckethead and many others.

IDA NIELSEN & THE FUNKBOTS

Ida Nielsen, is vaak ‘Prince's Funk Princess’ genoemd. De stoere Deense bassiste werd in 2010 ontdekt door Prince himself en maakte tot aan zijn dood in 2016 deel uit van The New Power Generation en het rocktrio 3rdeyegirl. Voor Ida was het spelen met Prince ‘de meest betoverende muzikale reis ooit’.

Inmiddels maakt Ida zelf naam als soloartiest en bandleider met een energieke mix van jazz, funk, rock en pop. Sinds het verschijnen van haar derde soloalbum Turnitup (2016) tourt ze met haar eigen band door Europa, Azië, Australië en de Verenigde Staten. De opnamen van haar vierde soloalbum worden op 7 juni even onderbroken voor een knallend optreden op het Red Light Jazz Festival.

CHARLIE HUNTER + LUCY WOODWARD TRIO

Sultry jazz and deep blues by 7-string miracle guitarist Charlie Hunter and diva Lucy Woodward, who previously sang with Snarky Puppy, Rod Stewart and Pink Martini.

Charlie Hunter and Lucy Woodward exude fun on stage with their seductive versions of jazz, blues, country and vintage pop songs; a tasteful, thoughtful repertory of which an album will be released this year. Clips of the brand new trio on YouTube sound promising, with songs by Nina Simone, Willie Dixon and Lucinda Williams, and a surprising role for percussionist Keita Ogawa.

Charlie Hunter is hailed among guitar aficionandos as a unique phenomenon on 7- and 8-string guitar, simultaneously playing melodies, chords and bass lines while improvising and holding an unmistakable groove. He previously collaborated with Norah Jones, John Mayer and D’Angelo.

Lucy Woodward is a singer with Dutch roots who grew up in New York. She recorded various solo albums, wrote pop hits and sang with Pink Martini and Snarky Puppy. She also worked with Rod Stewart, Chaka Khan and Carole King. In 2018 Lucy Woodward performed at Red Light Jazz with her (Dutch) band.

‘Lucy’s a ball, equally appreciable for fans of melodic sing-along baubles and highbrow aficionados of finely honed musical composition’ (Billboard).

‘It’s almost unfair to call Charlie Hunter a guitarist. His musicianship far exceeds what mere mortals can do with a few strings and a hunk of wood. It’s easy to forget that he has 10 fingers, just like the rest of us’ (Premier Guitar).

Kelvin Allison started singing at a young age, played in musicals and proved to be a true chameleon in the music industry. He studied music and reached the final of The X-Factor in 2010. In the meantime he became an artist, singer, entertainer, lyricist, composer, producer and pianist.

Kelvin was part of the successful DJ formation Kris Kross Amsterdam of the brothers Jordy and Sander Huisman, not to be confused with the well-known American rap duo Kris Kross. After a few years, Kelvin opted for a solo career. As a copywriter/composer, Kevin has worked with DJ Maike Mago, UK's Tough Love, Norwegian producer Jesper Borgen, DJ / producer LVNDSCAPE and the band Causes.

On Saturday evening June 8, Kevin performs at the Bulldog Hotel with guitarist Lorijn von Piekartz. Together with his brother Daniel, Lorijn is a regular player at the Bulldog Hotel.

The sound of Mosquito can best be described as a combination of Funk, R&B, Reggae, Country and Latin Jazz, in which the tight harmonious singing of the band is central.

The Amsterdam band was founded in 2004 by singer/guitarist Theo "Mosquito" Taihitu and drummer/singer Albert "Buddy" la Fonteine. After several changes in the formation, Mosquito really took shape in 2007 when the missing link presented itself: the Venezuelan metal bassist / singer José Gregorio Rangel Abreu, known from the band LABERINTO. By combining the different musical backgrounds of the band members, their passion for tequila and rum, Mosquito has meanwhile developed a style and sound of its own that makes you want to dance.

During Red Light Jazz 2019, Mosquito treats the public on a musical journey that appeals to the imagination, with exhilarating Caribbean rhythms and hilarious but sometimes heart-breaking stories. Always with a wink and a great sense of humor.

Hans Dulfer is one of the best-known saxophonists in the Netherlands. He played, amongst others, with Boy Edgar, John McLaughlin, Willem Breuker, Jan Akkerman and Herman Brood.

As a teenager Hans taught himself to play the saxophone. Tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins was his great example. At the end of the 1950s, Dulfer was active in the combo of Clous van Mechelen. Later Hans played in various groups such as Heavy Soul Inc. (with drummer Han Bennink and guitarist John McLaughlin), Ritmo Natural (the former rhythm section of Max Woiski jr.), Theo Loevendie Consort, Reflud ("Dulfer" spelled backwards), De Perikels and Future Groove Express.

In 1969 Dulfer won the Wessel Ilcken Award, an oeuvre prize named after drummer Wessel Ilcken, in recognition of his great merit for jazz. From 1980 that prize is called the "Boy Edgar Award".

In addition to being a musician, Hans has been a board member of the Bimhuis, columnist for Dutch music magazine OOR, director of Paradiso, radiohost of VPRO programs such as Streetbeats and Hothouse, as well as car salesman for Opel / General Motors.

In 1992, Dulfer and the Surinam Music Ensemble released the "Kid Dynamite Suite", a musical ode to the legendary Surinam saxophonist Kid Dynamite (Arthur Parisius, 1911-1963) who often performed in the Casablanca jazz café on the Zeedijk. Two years later, after a few outstanding reviews, the Suite was performed again. The prestigious Bird Award is also one of the prizes awarded to Hans. In 2002, Dulfer was named ‘Knight in the Order of the Dutch Lion’.

On his 75th birthday Hans received the Andreas Medal from the deputy mayor of Amsterdam for his great merit for the city. In December 2015, the authobiographic book "The Story of His Life!" Young & Foolish ’ was published.

For decades, Dulfer performed every Wednesday evening at Alto, a jazz café in the Korte Leidsedwarsstraat. Nowadays Hans plays with his band on Wednesday evenings at The Bulldog Palace on the Leidseplein.

Last year there was more interest in Hans Dulfer's concert at Casa Rosso than the capacity of the venue allowed. Fans who arrived 10 minutes before showtime had to be referred to other shows at the festival. So if you want to see Hans Dulfer and his fantastic band perform at Casa Rosso this year, come early!

The Amsterdam jazz quartet Uncharted Land consists of Terra Lasès (tenor saxophone, vocals), Daniel Hooglandt (piano), Yuri Heiligers (double bass) and Leon Yegenoglu (drums). These young and talented members of the group have been playing in this formation for more than two years.

They know each other from the different big bands of the recently deceased jazz legend Peter (“Jazz is fun, but serious fun”) Guidi. There the foundation was laid for their love of jazz. It brought them to numerous important jazz venues at home and abroad. For example, with the Junior Jazz Unlimited Big Band, they did various gigs in New York, where they attended a workshop in the famous Lincoln Center.

Despite their relatively short existence, Uncharted Land sounds like a matter of course. It sparkles, swings and radiates great vitality. Their playing is sometimes exuberant, at other times modest, but always creative in improvisations. The repertoire includes - in addition to standards - pieces by contemporary jazz composers. Since the foundation, the quartet has been coached by bassist Peter Bjornild, teacher at the Jazz Academy.

In the turbulent year 1927, Charles Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic Ocean with his plane The Spirit of Saint Louis. “Lucky Lindy hops Atlantic”, headed the newspapers, and two continents suddenly lay side by side. Swinging jazz from America conquered the old continent, ensuring dance pleasure for the young, worries for parents and dignitaries. Since its foundation in 2015, Spirit of St. Louis plays authentic American swing, blues and gospel music. In a brass band setting the charismatic crooner has a central role. Good chance you will find the group in the open air: unplugged, surrounded by swing and blues dancers who show that the spirit of that time is still alive. In the summer of 2018 the band played at various festivals, among others the Zwarte Cross in Lichtenvoorde. Not on a stage, but in between the audience. Excelsior Recordings released the Spirit’s first song on March 1 2019, a catchy cover of Lucky Millinder’s Clap Your Hands, recorded and produced by Paul Willemsen (Ruben Hein, The Gospel Sessions, BRUUT!, Beans & Fatback).

RED LIGHT JAZZ DINER

Entrance: €120

TICKETS

The Red Light Jazz Dinner is guaranteed to kick off in style at the entrance, where guests are received as VIPs and photographed on the red carpet as though it were a film premiere. Afterwards the guests are accompanied by lovely hostesses to a six-person table in the atmospheric Olof’s Chapel, transformed into a luxurious nightclub. Chef Chris Naylor from Michelin star restaurant Vermeer has concocted a fantastic 3-course menu, complete with an exquisite wine pairing.

Performing during the dinner will be the Round Midnight Orchestra, a jazz orchestra consisting of top musicians from the Dutch jazz scene. With their new show, Crooners Night Club, they transport the audience back in time to Las Vegas clubs in the ‘50s, the heyday of The Rat Pack (Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.). After dinner a concert by none other than Candy Dulfer and her jazz formation featuring bass player Harry Emmery will conclude a fabulous and unforgettable evening.

Candy continues to push boundaries with her album Together which was released in 2017. The album was inspired by what is great in jazz, disco, soul, dance and r&b, but is also a contemporary interpretation of what’s happening in music and in the world today. Candy created a personal and unique blend of musical genres & influences, bound together by her trademark sound, showcasing her versatility.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 28 years since Candy Dulfer rose to fame with her collaborations with Dave Stewart (the worldwide number 1 smash hit Lily was here) and of course the legendary Prince, whose tongue-in-cheek recommendation (“When I want sax, I call Candy”) in the "Partyman" video made the world sit up and notice the young, glamorous and talented sax player at his side. Their collaboration continued over the years with many studio sessions, TV show appearances, award show performances (including the Grammy Awards), and concert tours around the globe, including Candy joining Prince’s NPG band as a permanent member for his record-shattering Musicology tour & album.

Besides Prince, Candy has been fortunate to work - both in the studio and on stage - with some of the biggest names in music, including Van Morrison, Maceo Parker, Sheila E., Mavis Staples, Lionel Richie, Beyoncé, Pink Floyd, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, and many others.

Despite these high-profile collaborations, Candy mainly focused on her solo career, starting her own band at age 13 and touring the world ever since. Her first solo album Saxuality earned her a Grammy Award nomination, the combined world-wide sales of her solo albums top 2.5 million copies, and she has had several number 1 hits in the USA.

In between her many concert tours around the globe, she still manages to join Dutch female supergroup the Ladies of Soul for their annual sold-out concerts at the Amsterdam Ziggo Dome, is a headline performer on Jazz Cruises in the USA and Europe, is an ambassador for the Dutch ALS Foundation.

In the fall of 2017 she released her long-awaited autobiography ‘Sax, Candy & Rock-’n’-Roll’ (in Dutch only, English version coming soon) in which she tells her story - in her own words. Illustrated with dozens of rare photos, it is an intimate and deeply personal account of her life, onstage and offstage, featuring unique insights into life on the road, funny backstage stories about working with some of music’s greatest artists, and inspiring life lessons learned from traveling the world.

Catch Candy Dulfer and her band at the exclusive dinner event at Red Light Jazz 2019.

You know that on the inside there are hundreds of small parts that work together perfectly. The dial, the movement and the case take a lot of time shaping and polishing. When all small pieces are in front of you, it can be patiently assembled. All the musical parts these three musicians possess, come together when they play. A new piece of art.

Under the guidance of Shorty on guitar or keyboards, they play and sing from intimate easy listening to powerful and swinging music. From the well-known classics to the latest hits. When the music asks for it, Lynn picks up a tambourine or other percussion instrument.

Uptown Collective is the perfect mix between a live performance and a DJ. The combination of a professional DJ and one or more energetic live musicians brings the best of both worlds together. The DJ and live musicians know to play practically all types of music styles.

Uptown Collective will be a beautiful combination of our all-round DJ Miss Brown together with the mega soulful singer Felipa Fernandez.

Miss Brown is a half Lebanese and Hungarian but born in Amsterdam (Dutch) DJ. A daughter of two artists (musicians, acrobats and singers) that have travelled the world and ended up living in Amsterdam. She realized soon enough that spinning and making music was her thing. So after her study she literally dropt her diploma somewhere and raced to one of her gigs. She’s still going strong with spinning records and making people happy with her music since 2000.

Felipa was born on February 21st 1986, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands to a Danish mother and a Mexican father, Felipa Fernandez (Felipa Josine Fernandez Anderson) grew up in a multicultural and international environment. Her love of music started at an early age. Her father being a filmmaker and a photographer and her mother a writer, she grew up in a creative home where, from early on, she was exposed to all the arts. At the age of eight she joined a local children’s theater school where she took classes in dance, music and theater. That’s when she realized that the stage was the place for her. She went on singing and acting all throughout her youth, and after high school she studied music in Amsterdam. Currently Felipa lives and works as a singer in Amsterdam. Her work includes singing in various bands as lead singer and backing vocalist. She also works as an improvisational vocalist with DJs and live musicians for events around the country, and she occasionally teaches children’s music and singing workshop’s. However, first and foremost she considers herself a singer/songwriter and has always pursued her dreams and goals as a solo artist.

As the Uptown Collective for Red Light Jazz they will play Loungy, Soulful but Recognizable tracks that will end (or start) your Sunday evening beautifully.

Heartfelt homage to Cuban music from past to present, led by the widely renowned pianist Hilario Durán, who grew up in Havana.

Cuban pianist/composer Hilario Durán makes his instrument sound like an orchestra and this virtuoso style makes him a favorite of legendary compatriot Chucho Valdés. With his Contumbao Quartet he pays homage to Cuba’s rich musical history, with a repertory that spans the entire spectrum of Cuban music.

In the 1970s Hilario Durán was Chucho Valdés’ chosen successor in Cuba’s most modern big band, Orquesta Cubana de Música Moderna, which also contained members of the future group Irakere. In the 80s Durán worked with Arturo Sandoval and Dizzy Gillespie and made his international breakthrough. In the 90s he migrated to Canada where he leads his Latin Jazz Big Band. He has performed with musicians as varied as Michel Legrand and Michael Brecker.

Ruth Geerse is a Dutch singer, composer, pianoplayer and guitarplayer. Throughout the years Ruth sang in many different settings; from rockband to Big Band, soulband and as a singer songwriter accompanying herself on piano and guitar. In 2002 Ruth graduated from Rotterdam Conservatory and since then she played on the Uitmarkt, Vondelpark Openluchttheater, several Jazzfestivals and reached Finale Grote Prijs van Nederland Singer Songwriter.

Her strong lyrics show that she’s not only a singer and musician, but also a gifted writer who makes you think twice about certain facts of life.

Since 2017 she found the perfect setting to express herself and sing and arrange her own songs; a mix of Pop, Jazz and Latin with Dirkjan de Koning on drums and Guus van Beelen on bassguitar. Ruth writes the songs, sings and plays the piano.

The sound of Mosquito can best be described as a combination of Funk, R&B, Reggae, Country and Latin Jazz, in which the tight harmonious singing of the band is central.

The Amsterdam band was founded in 2004 by singer/guitarist Theo "Mosquito" Taihitu and drummer/singer Albert "Buddy" la Fonteine. After several changes in the formation, Mosquito really took shape in 2007 when the missing link presented itself: the Venezuelan metal bassist / singer José Gregorio Rangel Abreu, known from the band LABERINTO. By combining the different musical backgrounds of the band members, their passion for tequila and rum, Mosquito has meanwhile developed a style and sound of its own that makes you want to dance.

During Red Light Jazz 2019, Mosquito treats the public on a musical journey that appeals to the imagination, with exhilarating Caribbean rhythms and hilarious but sometimes heart-breaking stories. Always with a wink and a great sense of humor.

RED LIGHT JAZZ DINER
18:00 - 00:00

Entree: €120

SOLD OUT

The Red Light Jazz Dinner is guaranteed to kick off in style at the entrance, where guests are received as VIPs and photographed on the red carpet as though it were a film premiere. Afterwards the guests are accompanied by lovely hostesses to a six-person table in the atmospheric Olof’s Chapel, transformed into a luxurious nightclub. Chef Chris Naylor from Michelin star restaurant Vermeer has concocted a fantastic 3-course menu, complete with an exquisite wine pairing.

Performing during the dinner will be the Round Midnight Orchestra, a jazz orchestra consisting of top musicians from the Dutch jazz scene. With their new show, Crooners Night Club, they transport the audience back in time to Las Vegas clubs in the ‘50s, the heyday of The Rat Pack (Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.). After dinner a concert by none other than Candy Dulfer and her jazz formation featuring bass player Harry Emmery will conclude a fabulous and unforgettable evening.

Candy continues to push boundaries with her album Together which was released in 2017. The album was inspired by what is great in jazz, disco, soul, dance and r&b, but is also a contemporary interpretation of what’s happening in music and in the world today. Candy created a personal and unique blend of musical genres & influences, bound together by her trademark sound, showcasing her versatility.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 28 years since Candy Dulfer rose to fame with her collaborations with Dave Stewart (the worldwide number 1 smash hit Lily was here) and of course the legendary Prince, whose tongue-in-cheek recommendation (“When I want sax, I call Candy”) in the "Partyman" video made the world sit up and notice the young, glamorous and talented sax player at his side. Their collaboration continued over the years with many studio sessions, TV show appearances, award show performances (including the Grammy Awards), and concert tours around the globe, including Candy joining Prince’s NPG band as a permanent member for his record-shattering Musicology tour & album.

Besides Prince, Candy has been fortunate to work - both in the studio and on stage - with some of the biggest names in music, including Van Morrison, Maceo Parker, Sheila E., Mavis Staples, Lionel Richie, Beyoncé, Pink Floyd, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, and many others.

Despite these high-profile collaborations, Candy mainly focused on her solo career, starting her own band at age 13 and touring the world ever since. Her first solo album Saxuality earned her a Grammy Award nomination, the combined world-wide sales of her solo albums top 2.5 million copies, and she has had several number 1 hits in the USA.

In between her many concert tours around the globe, she still manages to join Dutch female supergroup the Ladies of Soul for their annual sold-out concerts at the Amsterdam Ziggo Dome, is a headline performer on Jazz Cruises in the USA and Europe, is an ambassador for the Dutch ALS Foundation.

In the fall of 2017 she released her long-awaited autobiography ‘Sax, Candy & Rock-’n’-Roll’ (in Dutch only, English version coming soon) in which she tells her story - in her own words. Illustrated with dozens of rare photos, it is an intimate and deeply personal account of her life, onstage and offstage, featuring unique insights into life on the road, funny backstage stories about working with some of music’s greatest artists, and inspiring life lessons learned from traveling the world.

Catch Candy Dulfer and her band at the exclusive dinner event at Red Light Jazz 2019.
