Product Description

Amazon.com

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

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.

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.

I own about ten Gatemouth Brown CD's and have yet to be disappointed in any of them. I have been in Gatemouth's company on a number of occasions, and while he resented being identified solely as a bluesman (he simply considered himself a wide-ranging musician - and I agree) he is, in my opinion, one of the very greatest bluesmen of all times, as well as being a virtuoso on guitar and violin. His Texas and Louisiana influences are evident in his innovative approach to music. His passing was a great loss to the music world. A man with great feeling in his music.

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.

While not the best of his many albums it is a very good one and great for roadtrips! You won't be disappointed. I had the pleasure of hearing and seeing him at a music fest/picnic about 10 years ago...what a joy! He was an incredibly versatile musician and one whose like we will not soon see. A talented musician as well as a very nice man.
