James Booker

Posted by on Thu, Dec 17, 2009 at 8:06 PM

It's James Carroll Booker III's birthday today. He would have been 70. (He died on Nov. 8, 1983.) The enigmatic and flamboyant pianist may not be mentioned as often as Professor Longhair, Dr. John or other New Orleans pianists, but few who saw him perform would say he wasn't as memorable. WWOZ 90.7 FM broke out the birthday Booker celebration at 12:01 this morning. Tune-in for more Booker tributes.
