Another installment from the cowboy-hatted, Firebird-sporting "Don't call me a bluesman" bluesman. Brown's correct in insisting that plays beyond the bounds of one genre, and he's been in the business long enough to hold forth on what he does and doesn't do. He learned about country music and fiddle tunes as a kid in Louisiana and fell under the spell of Texas style blues and swing music in the postwar years when T-Bone Walker was the man on electric guitar.
Gate's T-Bone-influenced playing is also laced heavily with big-band style chord hits; the horn arrangements his band plays fit hand-in-glove with his guitar, as they are often worked out directly from his six-string parts. NO LOOKING BACK has plenty of straight-up blues, from the shuffling "My Own Prison" and the slow blues "Better Off With The Blues" to the uptempo "Digging New Ground" and "We're Outta Here." But he also cooks on Ellington's "C-Jam Blues," waxes country in a duet with Michelle Shocked, and plays some funky fiddle on the swampy instrumental "Stop Time."
