motion picture DVD - Bayou Maharajah: the Life and Music of New Orleans piano legend James Booker
region 0 DVD.
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.
Lily Keber's roller coaster portrait traces Booker's life from his early years as a chart-topping child prodigy, to his star-studded years touring and playing as a sideman, through his outrageous solo career in America and Europe. First-person narrators lead the viewer through Booker's unbelievable onstage performances, occasionally in his underwear, dishing out drug-fueled conspiracy theories. Featuring interviews with the likes of Harry Connick Jr., Dr. John, Irma Thomas and Allen Toussaint, together with a generous helping of archival footage, the film brings to life the unforgettable story of this amazing musician.
