Critic Reviews for Bayou Maharajah

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

A sympathetic portrait of a genuinely idiosyncratic, outrageous individual.

July 4, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Booker sparkles in the archival performance clips, and director Lily Keber wisely homes in on his live solo performances, bringing out his character and talent.

May 1, 2014 | Full Review…

Overall, though, Keber's film feels like an honourable attempt to tidy up after and make order of its subject's spiralling chaos.

[Booker] backed a huge number of musicians.. But his solo work -- shown here in rollocking, flamboyant archive performances -- allowed him to give full flight to his infectious and innovative mix of jazz, blues and classical.

July 14, 2016 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Bayou Maharajah is worth watching for the performance footage alone.

July 10, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

[A] richly enjoyable documentary tribute.
