    I remember an interview with him after a riot in his neighborhood, when the interviewer suggested that perhaps it might have been safer for him (the white guy) to have left the area. Mr. Otis informed him that those people, were his people, and he wasn't going anywhere. Caught his act a few times. Good band leader and cool guy....
