Maharajah of the Bayou

Jonathan Hill sent me a trailer for this new documentary that delves into the life of the late New Orleans pianist, James Booker.

Doctor John called  him"the best black, gay, one-eyed junkie piano genius New Orleans has ever produced." The movie premieres this month and is titled Bayou Maharajah: The Tragic Genius of James Booker. I am not that familiar with the artist but the trailer clip looks (and sounds) really intriguing.
