He was influenced most by Tal Farlow and Billy Butlerbut gravitated toward the rhythm and blues -styled jazz Butler was popularizing with organist Bill Doggett 's combo. Jones' sound and style stayed remarkably consistent during his recording career. His twangy tone coupled catchy chordal vamps  with astonishing rapid-fire single-note playing.
