Critic Reviews for Bayou Maharajah

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

  • [A] richly enjoyable documentary tribute.

    Jul 7, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A sympathetic portrait of a genuinely idiosyncratic, outrageous individual.

    Jul 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.

    Jul 14, 2016 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • Bayou Maharajah is worth watching for the performance footage alone.
