A reunion with Ida Patterson

On 2 October 1987 I went to Minneapolis to give a concert and I saw Ida Patterson again. I said to her, “You are still very, very strong, energetic, dynamic. I am so happy to see you again. Twenty years ago I came to your place and you gave me shelter.”

She replied, “You were just a young man. You said you came into the lion’s mouth when you came to America.”

“Luckily, I was not devoured!” was my reply.
