Raymond Joseph Grismer (1927-2010) was a pianist and amateur magician.
Grismer was a gifted jazz pianist and performed in a jazz trio. He would usually do a little magic for folks (card effects, mentalism and ring and string ) during the breaks between sets.
Around 1969, he traded magic lessons for music lessons with his friend Dai Vernon, when the professor decided he wanted to learn to play piano.
