Critic Reviews for Bayou Maharajah
A sympathetic portrait of a genuinely idiosyncratic, outrageous individual.
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.
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.
Bayou Maharajah is worth watching for the performance footage alone.
