Bayou Maharajah: The Troubled Genius Of James Booker
As many of you have read on these very pages, I'm a bit obsessed with the late, great James Booker. I've done a few posts here and on The Huffington Post about his genius, as well as offered up more than a few samples of his wizardry on the piano.
