A 75-year-old bad boy for whom 2015 marks sixty years in jazz. And yet, saxophonist Hans Dulfer (1940) is not really ‘the enfant terrible of Dutch jazz’; his deeds are too constructive for that epithet: he brought jazz to the temple of pop, Paradiso, and co-founded the progressive Bimhuis. Dulfer has always been on the go. He is not only popular in the Netherlands, but also in Japan where his single Hyperbeat was hot in 1995. In 1994-1995 Dulfer had a big European hit with the album Big Boy. Over the years Dulfer has shown that he has a keen ear for sounds that are hip, and he knows how to incorporate them into his own music. He has repeatedly reached varied and wide audiences with bands like Heavy Soul Inc., Reflud and Tough Tenors. In 1993, Dulfer received the prestigious Bird Award. He remains as active as ever and is currently on The 75/60 Road Tour with a new band.
