Richard M. Jones, a.k.a. Richard Marigny Jones, (13 June 1892 - 8 December 1945) was a jazz pianist, composer, band leader, and record producer. Jones grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Jones suffered from a stiff leg and walked with a limp; fellow musicians gave him the nickname "Richard My Knee Jones" as a pun on his middle name. In his youth he played alto horn in brass bands. His main instrument, however, became the piano. By 1908 he was playing in Storyville, the red-light district of New Orleans.
A few years later, he often led a small band which sometimes included Joe Oliver. Jones also worked in the bands of John Robichaux, Armand J. Piron, and Papa Celestin. In 1918 Jones moved to Chicago. ...show less
