SINGING HER OWN PRAISES

Alto saxophone player Candy Dulfer will showcase another talent in her newest recording -- her voice.

"I'm not the next Mariah Carey," the Amsterdam-born musician said Sunday in a statement. "I have good timing and I can carry a tune. Besides, it's easier to make contact with a crowd and express yourself with your voice than it is with a horn in your face."

Dulfer, the 28-year-old daughter of saxophone player Hans Dulfer, has performed on more than 30 recordings and toured with Prince, Madonna, Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison and Pink Floyd. She had a 1989 hit with the song "Lily Was Here," the title track to a Dutch film.

She played the drums when she was 5 and picked up the saxophone when she was 7. Her latest recording, "For the Love of You," is due out Oct. 21.
