Hahaha, I had to look up Jonah Jones on Wikipedia and he’s legit:

“Jonah Jones (born Robert Elliott Jones; December 31, 1909 – April 29, 2000) was a jazz trumpeter who is perhaps best known for creating concise versions of jazz and swing standards that appealed to a mass audience. In jazz he might be best appreciated for his work with Stuff Smith. He was sometimes referred to as “King Louis II.” Started playing alto sax at the age of 12 in the Booker T Washington Community Center band in Louisville before quickly transitioning to trumpet where he excelled immediately.”
