While not known as an electric piano artist, James Booker was an amazing New Orleans piano player who continues to influence many. Going to see the new documentary tonight in Dayton, Ohio. Check it out if it comes to your town.

Here's a link to the doc:

Harry Connick Jr mentioned that guy in an interview with the magazine many years ago.  Piano genius but serious messed up from narcotics.
