“Jump, Jazz, Jive, Vintage R’n’B” my blog is bylined. But what about the blues, you may ask. Well, yes! So here I present you part of a concert the multitalented Clarence Gatemouth Brown (April 18, 1924 — September 10, 2005) gave in Nice in Southern France on July 14 1977. This is from an old VHS cassette that contains the french TV broadcast. Brown (voc, eg, violin) is accompanied by Billy Mitchell (ts); Lloyd Glenn (p); George Duvivier (b) and J.C. Heard. The tune’s title is “Dollar’s got the Blues”.
