iTunes Review

Though often considered a bluesman, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown's creative reach extends far beyond any one genre. For over 50 years, his freewheeling sound has mixed jazz and country influences, along with Southwestern-style blues, into a hard-to-classify but easy-to-love style. Texas Swing is an extra-generous helping of Brown's music from two of his best 1980s albums, the Grammy-winning Alright Again! and One More Mile. He lays down lead guitar lines with effortless finesse, shining especially on "Alligator Boogaloo" and "Frosty." His down-home fiddle playing sizzles on "Song for Renee," and his gravelly vocals add grit to "Stranded." From big-band numbers ("Information Blues") to funky Louisiana-style tunes ("Sunrise Cajun Style") and crisp-cut blues ("One More Mile"), Brown leads his group with spark and spirit. His horn section -most notably sax player Bill Samuels - provides tight and snappy embellishment. Whether he's sounding rootsy or refined, Brown gets down in style on Texas Swing.

Texas Swing

I had the pleasure of seeing Gatemouth perform at the Stanhope House in 1992. He was awesome! I reccomend this CD 110% You will not be dissappointed! Gatemouth Rocks!


I lost all my songs the first time I down loaded. I saw "Gatemouth" on cable, singing familiar song. I knew who it was. All excited, how could forget I had this cd before. Re- down loaded, paid again for this same cd. Good, up beat tunes!! :)

Whatever you do, don't refer to multi-instrumentalist Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown as a bluesman, although his imprimatur on the development of Texas blues is enormous. You're liable to get him riled. If you must pigeonhole the legend, just call him an eclectic Texas musical master whose interests encompass virtually every roots genre imaginable. Brown learned the value of versatility while growing up in Orange, TX. His dad was a locally popular musician who specialized in country, Cajun, and bluegrass...
