“He’ll shake his bones to hot saxophones,
Cause Mr. Ghost is going to town.”
From 1937 here’s the vocal harmony stylings of The Five Jones Boys. Which means everything you hear on this recording is performed by a group member using only their voice. Apparently they did use a guitar sometimes, but I can’t hear one in this recording. That is all I can tell you about them and pretty much all the information that exists online. Sorry, The Five Jones Boys have been largely forgotten, but have a listen, you won’t be disappointed.
