Image of Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown


Brown started crossing boundaries -- both musical and geographical -- at a very young age. He was born in 1924 in Vinton, Louisiana and raised in Orange, Texas. He learned guitar and fiddle from his father, a strong multi-instrumentalist who taught his son to play Texas fiddle music, traditional French tunes and even polkas. Gate began his professional career at the age of 21 as a drummer in ... Read more in Amazon's Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

These 17 tracks compose two of Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown's albums from the early 1980s, the Grammy Award-winning Alright Again! and the Grammy-nominated One More Mile. As the preceding suggests, this is Gate at his best, winding his way through blues, jazz, country, and all points in between with a surety that puts many a non-genre-crossing artist to shame. Whether he's taking the lead with guitar (highlights include "Alligator Boogaloo" and "Frosty"), vocals (listen to him growl on "Stranded"), or especially violin (head right for "Song for Renee"), Gate never misses a step--and sometimes he steps back to let others take the lead, as with Bill Samuel's gorgeous tenor sax solo on "Gate Walks to Board." Overall, it's a great blend of Texas blues and swing, the latter done with enough sincerity and aplomb to leave the swing revivalists of the late '90s in the dust. --Genevieve Williams

4.0 out of 5 stars Gatemouth Swings the Blues May 9, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Clarence " Gatemouth" Brown does it again with an eclectic mix of blues and swing tunes with a small group of all-stars. Performing on fiddle (violin & viola), guitar and vocals, Brown plays with outstanding jazzmen such as trumpeter Nicholas Payton and tenor saxman Tony Dagradi, both New Orleans based.
There were familiar standards such as Ellington's "I'm Beginning to See the Light," Don't Get Around Much Any More," and Mercer's "Thing's Ain't What They Used to Be." Two Charlie Parker-Jay McShann tunes are represented here with "Hootie Blues" and "Jumpin' the Blues."
Of the several tunes new to me, I particularly liked "Swamp Ghost" written by Gatemouth, among others. It featured Joe Krown on organ.
On listening to this album, it was reminsicent of small-group material played by Basie with some vocals reminding me ofthe late blues master Joe Williams. This is one I'll want to hear again and again.

On my first date with my husband he took me to see Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown at a Blues Club in Dallas. The best blues I have ever heard. I recommend any and all of his music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Texas Swing 1990 Stereo CD $16.98 August 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw Clarence Gatemouth Brown on Kenny Wayne Shepard's CD and DVD 10 Days Out and thought he was a cool cat. This is my first Clarence CD and I am really happy with it. Stereo (right-left-sub) only with good sound production. Great package and liner notes from 1987.These songs seem to be mostly from two previous albums Alright Again and One More Mile. As I go deeper into the blues I am starting to hear the differences between Chicago, Texas, and Delta Blues. I sure love this Texas Blues.
Thanks Gatemouth.
