The Don Johnson who played on Love and Joy (also the Hate To See You Go, Cobine Plays Carmichael, and the Big Band Of Al Cobine Plays Songs of Yesterday and Today LP's) was Donald L. Johnson (11/13/1930 - 10/19/2011) from Indiana. He played trumpet with Cobine's big band from the first rehearsal in 1955, and was a fixture in the trumpet section (much of the time as a lead trumpet player)until moving to Florida in August of 1985. Don began playing professionally in 1947 with Tommy Robbins Big Band. He also played in bands led by Clay Phillips, Wayne Luby, Jim Edison, and John Von Ohlen/Chuck Carter/Steve Allee. Don can also be heard on the Downtown Blues CD by the Von Ohlen/Carter/Allee Big Band.

The Don Johnson from the Blue Wisp recordings was trumpeter Donovan Johnson of Cincinnati.
