“Tough Tenor” and co-founder of the BIMHUIS Hans Dulfer is back. Together with other musicians, he opened the jazz club 45 years ago with a festive evening. At that time, at the Oude Schans in the center of Amsterdam, in a concrete space without seats and with a wrecked bar .. Throughout his career, Dulfer has kept a keen ear for new sounds, energetic beats and catchy melodies. At BIMHUIS he played in many different settings throughout the years: with the young Funky Organizers, with his duo with drummer Cyril Directie, with the Leadbelly project with singer Kim Hoorweg and with his own band in which guitarist Jerome Hol and special guests such as his daughter Candy Dulfer and trombonist Joseph Bowie, play along. This time he looks back on the very first evening at BIMHUIS: 1 October 1974. Entirely in style, he does so with a very special guest, percussionist Nippy Noya. According to experts (and Dulfer himself) the master of percussionists. ‘Only a ‘tough tenor’ can bring together a break dancer, a rough rapper, an electronic beat maker and a double bassist for a radical new vision of jazz rock’ (NRC Handelsblad). ‘Music with a spark you seldomly hear these days’ (Maxazine.nl on the album Duo Dulfer Directie).
