Modern Fix

A blues showman in the tradition of Aaron “T-Bone” Walker, multi-instrumentalist Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown regales this German club crowd with guitar and fiddle in the 10-song set. The 1995 concert is an entertaining example of Brown’s Texas blues fusions style, a mix of blues, country, R&B, Cajun and some jazz. Brown rose to prominence in the post-War blues scene and has 50 years of experience to draw on in the excellent, varied performance that includes “Take the A-Train”, “Long Way Home” and “Mojo Workin'”.
