Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown (albums 1972 - 2004)



Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown ha sido un músico estadounidense multiinstrumentista que nació en Louisiana en 1924 pero pasó la mayor parte de su vida en Texas, donde murió en 2005 a causa de un cáncer de pulmón.
Su padre era violinista y desde pequeño le transmite la pasión por la música. Clarence aprende a tocar el violín y después la guitarra, dominando también la armónica, la mandolina, el bajo y la batería.





En la década de los 40 y 50, se mueve por los clubes de Houston, acompañando a T-Bone Walker que se convierte en su mentor. En esta época ya destaca por su sentido del ritmo, que le hace mezclar blues, jazz y swing. Pero el éxito no llega, y en los años 60 decide darle un giro a su carrera introduciendo el country, pero combinándolo con el jazz de una manera muy original al introducir instrumentos de viento en sus trabajos.




Será en la década de los 70 cuando edita discos donde ya logra perfeccionar ese estilo propio, con mezclas perfectas de blues, country y jazz, llegando a sonar como una big band.




A comienzos de los 70, aprovechando el beneplacito que el blues tenia en Europa, tras participar en el Festival de Blues de Chicago en el 71, salta el charco para presentarse en el Festival de Montreux por primera vez en el 73 (repetiria en varias ocasiones), en el Festival de Niza y otros eventos en el viejo continente.




Durante este periodo graba varios discos para diversas editoras, como la prestigiosa Black & Blue, destacando Cold Storage (73), para Barclay Gate's On The Heat (74) o el espléndido Makin' Music (79), junto al guitarrista y cantante de country Roy Clark para One Way.




En todos estos trabajos muestra la extensa paleta artistica que caracteriza su musica, pasando del jazz tipico de New Orleans al country o del blues al zydeco (cajun), con sus dos instrumentos preferidos, la guitarra y su violin.




En la década de los 80, EEUU redescubre al fin al musico, reiniciando una carrera en su pais. Ficha por la Rounder con los que graba una serie de albumes, Alright Again (81) por el que obtiene un Grammy, One More Mile (82) y Real Life (86). Cambia de sello, y para Alligator sigue su publicacion de joyitas con LPs como Standing My Ground (89) y No Looking Back (92).




Convertido en un habitual indiscutible de los festivales, a partir de mediados de los noventa, realiza hasta 300 conciertos al año incluyendo giras por Australia, Nueva Zelanda, Africa, Centro América y Rusia. En 1995 es telonero de Eric Clapton. Todo ello no le impide continuar con su produccion discografica, esta vez para la prestigiosa Verve, The Man (94) o Gate Swings (97) entre otros.




A finales de los 90 le siguen lloviendo premios ,mientras sigue con su incesante serie de directos, hasta que en 2004, grabando lo que seria su ultimo trabajo Timeless (04), ya enfermo, con un enfisema y una cardiopatia severas, contando ya con 80 años, baja de los escenarios al serle diagnosticado un cancer de pulmon, renunciando a cualquier tipo de tratamiento, fallece el 10 de septiembre del 2005.
