Boogaloo Joe Jones

Jones made his solo debut as Joe Jones on Prestige Records in 1967, but earned the name “Boogaloo Joe” following a 1969 record of that title. The nickname was meant to distinguish him from the other people with similar names in the music business, such as R&B singer Joe Jones, jazz drummers “Papa Jo” Jones and Philly Joe Jones, and the Joe Jones of the Fluxus movement. Later, he turned to billing himself as Ivan “Boogaloo Joe” Jones.
