Little Village was formed in 1992 by Ry Cooder (guitar, vocal), John Hiatt (guitar, piano, vocal), Nick Lowe (bass, vocal) and Jim Keltner (drums). Their eponymous album met with lukewarm reviews and general commercial indifference. The group disbanded in late 1992. In 1993 their album was nominated for a Grammy Award as Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or a Group. The four musicians first worked together as a unit -- albeit not under the Little Village name -- when recording John Hiatt's album "Bring The Family" in 1987.
