Overview

The Village Caller!

A touch lightweight at times but fun anyway, this set (reissued on CD in 1998) mostly puts the spotlight on vibraphonist Johnny Lytle. His backup group (organist Milt Harris, bassist Bob Cranshaw, drummer William "Peppy" Hinnant and percussionist Willie Rodriguez) is primarily in a very supportive role with Harris' often-bombastic solos looking more toward Wild Bill Davis and early '50s organ stylists than to Jimmy Smith. "The Village Caller" was a minor hit at the time and like most of the songs on this date (four Lytle originals and four rearranged standards) it is a bit catchy. Most of the selections on this date are treated rhythmically, either R&B-ish or with a Latin feel. The results will not reward close listening, but Lytle plays well and this CD will be considered quite satisfying at parties.
