Love Is Timeless On Johnny Dizzy Moore's "Love Kiss Blue"

Trumpeter Johnny 'Dizzy' Moore demonstrates the timelessness of love and music on this 1968 instrumental.

"Love Kiss Blue" (1968, Matador) featuring trumpeter Johnny "Dizzy" Moore shows off Dizzy’s explorative intent. Produced by Lloyd ‘The Matador’ Daley, “Love Kiss Blue” is Dizzy’s version on the “I Don’t Care At All” riddim, attributed to The Hamlin’s “I Don’t Care At All” vocal version. In comparison, Dizzy clearly still cares and his composition offers a merry, ebullient melody that one can’t help but fall in love with. Dizzy’s excellent calibre of playing and arranging is of course heard on a variety of works from the Skatalites of which he was a founding member and the bona fide classic, “Simmer Down” (1964) by The Wailers.
