    'Philly' Joe Jones is not 'Boogaloo' Joe Jones.

    Neither is the Roboticist Joe Jones, who invented the Roomba.

    If one wants to listen to some guitar-based soul jazz, these distinctions are important.

    That is all.

    We love our Roomba. I may just get a cat for the laughs.

    The most famous controversy involving Philly Joe was actually about confusing him with Jo Jones. Philly Joe's real name was Joe, and Jo Jones' real name was Jonathan. Sometimes people would get the two of them confused. Also, sometimes Jo Jones' first name was incorrectly written as Joe.
