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 overlooked genius.

A fine contribution to public knowledge of a musician who is greatly respected but little known. Good use of audio documents. The bonus reel of interviews features a wide variety of pianists, including Harry Connick, demonstrating the genius of James Booker III.
