Jimmy Stewart San Francisco Unknown

 At age 16, I got a chance to fill in with the Earl (Fatha) Hines Band when it came to San Francisco. The guys looked up from the bandstand and saw me coming (with my Nick Espositio Guitar). They must have wondered what was going on. A little way into the set Fatha pointed at me and said, "Solo !" I was scared! But I played, and it came out beautiful! After the set, Hines said, "You play good, son. From now on, YOU STAND up when you solo."
