“Good Timin'” was a number-one R&B single in the UK Singles Chart in 1960, and No. 3 in the US.
Jones was born in Birmingham, Alabama. Starting his entertainment career as a tap dancer, he joined a doo-wop group named the Berliners in 1954. They later changed their name to Sparks Of Rhythm. In 1955 Jones co-wrote “Handy Man”, which was recorded by the Sparks Of Rhythm in 1956 (after Jones left the group). After recording with other groups, Jones went solo and, in 1959, teamed up with Otis Blackwell.
His considerable influence using falsetto extended to Del Shannon, who paid homage to Jones and also The Ink Spots for Shannon’s falsetto style. Later singers who used falsetto included Frankie Valli of The Four Seasons, Lou Christie, Robert John, and Barry Gibb.
