Bayou Maharajah explores the life of New Orleans piano legend James Booker, the man Dr. John called “the best black, gay, one-eyed junkie piano genius New Orleans has ever produced.” A pianist of provocative brilliance, his talent belied a life of struggle, isolation and chronic addictions. With never-before-seen concert footage and exclusive interviews, Lily Keber’s evocative documentary reveals an often overlooked genius.
