Info zu Alright Again!

„Alright Again!“ is one of roots music wizard Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown's finest moments. The 1982 Grammy-winning album finds Brown honing his particular melange of traditional blues, swing, jump, jazz, and country flavors to a punchy, sophisticated edge with the help of a 10-piece R&B big band. Impeccably tight, hard driving arrangements are propelled by a powerhouse rhythm section, while the cadre of five horns lends thick punctuation to Brown's throaty, no nonsense vocals, slashing guitar leads, and wild violin, notably on 'Baby Take it Easy.'

As usual, there's equal emphasis on originals and covers, as the album kicks off with tasty jump blues nods to two of Brown's kindred spirits, Albert Collins ('Frosty') and T Bone Walker ('Strollin' With Bones'). Elsewhere, Junior Parker's 'I Feel Alright Again' is given a swinging treatment, and Percy Mayfield's 'Give Me Time to Explain' is laid down with an uptempo walking groove. Brown's own songs, including the languid slow blues 'Sometimes I Slip' and the funky 'Dollar Got the Blues' display plenty of his six-string mastery, and the band sounds fresh and vital. „Alright Again!“ is a definitive document of American music performed by one of its most talented and versatile exponents.

„One of the most satisfying contemporary Brown discs of all for the discerning blues fan. Nothing but swinging, horn-abetted blues adorn this album, as Gate pays tribute to an influence and a protege by covering T-Bone Walker's 'Strollin' with Bones' and Albert Collins's 'Frosty.' Brown's jauntily revives Junior Parker's 'I Feel Alright Again' and Percy Mayfield's 'Give Me Time to Explain,' while his own numbers -- a funky 'Dollar Got the Blues,' the luxurious blues 'Sometimes I Slip' -- are truly brilliant.“ (Bill Dahl. AMG)
