Live at the Maple Leaf - Part One
Absolutely freeEvery time we post a new video,we'll send you a notice by e-mail.
New Orleans 1983
If you know New Orleans, you know the significance of footage of James Booker at the Maple Leaf.
It's a little like getting to see Mozart playing at your bar and grill.
Booker was one of the greatest piano players New Orleans ever produced - which is saying a lot.
Personal problems led to an erratic career path, but his playing was supreme.
The Maple Leaf is still there. The music side of the club has all the ambience of a small garage. It's mind boggling that this was where Booker had to play, but such is the way of music in America.
Songs in this video:
Papa was a Rascal
One for the Highway
One Hell of a Nerve
Purportedly recorded ten days before his death.
That's how we grow.
