  • TEXAS SWING is an appropriate title for the hard-driving roots music melange that is singer, songwriter, violinist, and axe-slinger extraordinaire Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown's oeuvre. This album is a superlative compilation of tracks from two of Brown's early '80s sessions, the Grammy-winning ALRIGHT AGAIN! and the Grammy-nominated ONE MORE MILE.
  • Brown is backed by a hair-raising big band throughout. The powerhouse rhythm section and wildly swinging horn section lend fat backing to originals such as the rolling "Ain't That Dandy" and the funk-inflected "Dollar Got the Blues," as well as well-honed covers such as T Bone Walker's "Strollin' With Bones." In addition to his blistering guitar leads and rough and ragged vocals (which always sound like an incitement to have a good time, no matter what he's singing), Brown blows a mean harmonica, and saws a dazzling fiddle (check out "Baby Take It Easy"). It's impossible to go wrong with this 17-song selection from this musical legend.
