    Bayou Maharajah: The Tragic Genius of James Booker

    1h 30min
    2013     Documentary     USA

    Bayou Maharajah explores the life and music of New Orleans piano legend James Booker, the man Dr. John described as "the best black, gay, one-eyed junkie piano genius New Orleans has ever produced." A brilliant pianist, his eccentricities and showmanship belied a life of struggle, prejudice, and isolation. Illustrated with never-before-seen concert footage, rare personal photos, and exclusive interviews, the film paints a portrait of this unjustly neglected genius.
