Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Another fine recording from the genre-bending multi-instrumentalist, Standing My Ground finds Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown turning a hand at guitar, vocals, and fiddle as usual, as well as piano on the jumping "Never Unpack Your Suitcase" and some great drum breaks on "She Walks Right In." There's a stellar swing-jazz piece, appropriately titled "Cool Jazz," and a blues-zydeco mix on, yep, "Louisiana Zydeco." The high point, though, is Gate's take on "What Am I Living For," as tender a blues ballad as has ever been recorded. In addition, Gate breathes new life into "Got My Mojo Working," which has got to be one of the most frequently covered blues songs on record. --Genevieve Williams

"This is one of the CD's that I never get tired of listening to. Gatemouth can do it all. He is as comfortable playing jazz as he is singing the blues. He is one versital musician, at some point during this record he plays the guitar, fiddle, piano and drums. I'd be happy beong able to play a single instument as well as he plays any one of those."
Love it

"There's lots of nice jazz/blues on this cd, great horn section, etc. I saw an ad in a guitarist's magazine of some sort once, that said Clarence is the only guitarist who's influenced more guitarists than he's been influenced by.

I'm the 4th reviewer out of 4 to give it 5 stars - I predict that if you like blues you will like this CD; if you like jazz you will like this CD. If you don't like jazz or blues, well, I can't help you."
