There was a gap from October 1927 to June 1929 where Jones did not record, probably due to disbanding and reorganization. From 1929 to 1932, his Brunswick recordings became more sophisticated with very interesting arrangements. During this period, Jones started featuring violinist Eddie Stone as one of his regular vocalists. Stone had an unusual, almost humorous vocal style. (It seems that Jones was indifferent to vocalists until he started using Stone and in 1932, Joe Martin.) In 1932, Jones signed with Victor Records and these records are generally considered among the very best arranged and performed commercial dance band records of the Depression era. He stayed with Victor until July, 1934, when he signed with Decca. (Jones' recordings during the 1929 Brunswicks through the 1934 Victors rivaled Paul Whiteman and all other dance bands as examples of the very best dance music of the era.)
