Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown plays on, in the face of a cancer diagnosis. The Louisiana musician and singer wraps the eclectic sounds of his region and jazz influences from elsewhere into his songs: a little bit country, a little bit Cajun, a little bit blues, all mixed with the sound of a big band. Nick Spitzer has followed Gatemouth's career, and has a profile.
