40 Year Itch : Knocked Out Loaded

James Booker : Junco Partner

    Produced by Joe Boyd, Junco Partner captures the legendary New Orleans pianist James Booker's virtuoso, poly rhythmic piano playing in the second best way possible: just Booker and his piano in a studio. The best way, of course, is with an audience present and an open can of Schlitz within reach. Booker could turn a classical waltz into a Bourbon Street party. I've always wished I could play the piano like this.
