When I was a child we went to a school auditorium somewhere in the Seattle area for a concert with Hinton. It was really embarrassing to us to realize that there maybe only a dozen people there to hear him--we knew he was so good and the room should have been filled. Sam took it in his stride, invited everyone to the area down in front of the stage where we pulled up chairs in a small circle and he sang and talked. It was wonderful!
