Clarence M. Jones was a pioneer Chicago jazz pianist during the 1920's who is also credited as the original author of "The Dirty Dozen". He was Jimmy Blythe's piano teacher, accounting for the similarity in their styles. Clarence M. Jones' "Wonder Orchestra" performed at Chicago's Owl Theater where this solo piano variation of "Hula Lou," proved a popular stage novelty. Additionally Clarence served as accompanist to a number of prominent singers on record including Monette Moore teamed up with Tommy Ladnier and Jimmy O'Bryant as "The Paramount Trio"; and Laura Smith during a single session in Chicago for Victor in 1927.
