Lots of people, including radio folks over the years(myself included), have called him, Johnny "Lie-TELL", but he told me once that "LIE-tull" (ryhmes wth "title") is really correct. It's also explained that way in the liner notes of a couple of his albums.

 In addition to being a fine musician, Lytle had some good showmanship to go along with it too. A great live performer!

Anyone know for sure how vibraphonist Johnny Lytle's name is pronounced? Is
it like Chicken Little or is Lytle with the first syllable rhyming with lye?

An in advance thanx...
