Born Lloyd “Tiny” Grimes in Newport News, Virginia on June 7, 1946
Loch Lomond Tiny “Mac” Grimes & the Rocking Highlanders
Gotham Records 1947
A consummate jazz and blues guitarist and vocalist, Grimes hit his commercial
peak with the Rocking Highlanders in the late 1940s through mid-1950s.
The band was on the bill for Alan Freed’s Rock & Roll Coronation Ball in Cleveland,
Ohio in 1952, but authorities shut down the show before they reached the stage.
Most music historians concider the Coronation Ball is considered both the first
rock & roll concert and the first rock & roll riot.
I Miss You So The Cats & The Fiddle Bluebird Records 1941
Grimes’s first hit, he had been playing guitar for just 18 months
when he joined The Cats in early 1941.
I Ain’t Got Nobody The Art Tatum Trio Brunswick Records 1944
Grimes said he left The Cats & The Fiddle because their music was not
challenging enough and the pay was not high enough. He joined the
Art Tatum Trio and recorded several sides with them before going solo near
the end of World War II.
