James Booker was a hugely influential New Orleans piano player and unique character that many people don’t seem to know.  He sounds great playing stride, boogie-woogie, jazz, R&B – always funky!  Harry Connick, Jr. tells great stories about the frequently legally challenged Booker “dropping by” his house (his father was the District Attorney in New Orleans and his mother was a judge) to show him a few things on piano.
