Dr. John called James Booker “the best black, gay, one-eyed junkie piano genius New Orleans has ever produced,” but you can remove most of those adjectives, leaving just “piano genius,” and it would still be accurate. Through never-before-seen concert footage and interviews with the people who knew and idolized him, Bayou Maharajah traces Booker’s tumultuous life from his beginning as a chart-topping child prodigy to his ending as a self-destructive eccentric, looking beneath the adjectives and illuminating both the tortured artist and the city that helped create him.
