Fury and his Howling Commandos #4
accomplished jazz trumpeter at an early age, Gabriel Jones
grew up in New York City, spending his youth playing at his
uncle Bill's jazz club in upper Manhattan . Winning local acclaim,
Jones was exceptionally lucky in receiving coaching in trumpet
playing from the legendary Louis Armstrong himself. Jones also
gained another teacher in Danny "Drummer" Bellaman,
a Harlem-born jazz musician, playing drums. The pair became
fast friends, playing nightclubs gigs. Army Intelligence took
note of both men joining the war effort. Jones' interest in
music gained the attention of the top brass and the Army sent
him to a high specialty school where he became an expert in
German classical music.
Despite segregation in the armed forces, Jones found himself hand
picked by Captain "Happy" Sam Sawyer to enlist in the
First Attack Squad, aka the famous Howling Commandos lead by Nick
Fury. Jones distinguished himself both with the music of machine
guns and his handy trumpet, which he used to jazz countless Howler
parties in the barracks and to unusual and effective use in battle.
With the Howlers, Jones faced some of the Nazi's worst menaces,
including Baron Zemo, Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker, and Colonel
Klaue. Such were the Howling Commandos feared by the Third Reich,
a counter squad of elite fighters, the Blitzkrieg Squad was formed,
and among their number, the
machine gunner, Otto, was designated Gabe Jones' nemesis.
Jones was reunited with his old band mate, Danny Bellaman near
the end of the war under less then happy circumstances;
selected to find his old friend who was holding a Nazi virus.
Held as a POW, Bellerman escaped with the virus but rather then
let either side take it, Bellerman swallowed the formula and when
Jones found him was already dying.
Jones was engaged to marry Carla Williams, whom he had met during
World War II when she was performing as a nightclub singer under
the name Carla Swain. Jones was assigned to rescue her from Nazi-occupied
Paris, and he and the Howlers saved her life from a Nazi officer.
Following World War II Jones presumably continued his career as
a jazz musician until he reenlisted for the Korean War, once again
seeing combat as a Howling Commando with his former team mates.
After the Korean War, its unclear what Jones was doing just prior
to joining SHIELD, however once he was in, Jones became one of
Fury's closest aides, assisting him in running the entire organization
and acting as an operative on major missions.
