Before forming his band in 1934, Tiny sang with Horace Henderson, drummed for Marion Hardy, the Savoy Bearcats, and the Mills Blue Rhythm Band, and sang for Luis Russell. His own band produced such saxophone stars as Sonny Stitt, Red Prysock, and Sil Austin. Among the vocalists to record with Tiny's band were Roy Brown, Arthur Prysock, Lonnie Johnson, and Tiny Kennedy.
