In 1972, Aztec Two-Step, whose name comes from a poem by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, burst upon the scene with their self-titled debut album on Elektra Records. Since then Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime making music together as the folk/rock duo Aztec Two-Step. Their first album, along with their subsequent albums for RCA Records were staples of progressive FM and college radio and helped to bring the folk/rock music of the 1960s into the 70s and beyond.
As their recording career continued, so did the critical acclaim. In 1987, “Living in America” received the New York Music Award for “Best Folk Album” and was named inBillboard’s year-end critic’s poll.
In 2008, the duo released “Time It Was -The Simon & Garfunkel Songbook” (Red Engine Records), a live tribute album of S&G’s music, featuring narration by legendary DJ and music historian Pete Fornatale, who provides commentary and insights based on his interviews with Simon & Garfunkel. Rex, Neal, Pete and bassist Fred Holmancontinue to impress audiences up and down the eastern seaboard and beyond with this entertaining and informative show.
“Aztec Two-Step comes with interesting and melodious arrangements
and pleasantly breezy tunes.” New York Times
“Cult folk-rockers can still carry off their sweet, supple harmonies and bouncy
acoustic pop with aplomb. Recommended.” Billboard
“…the right sound at the right time…beautiful acoustic guitar playing and questioning
lyrics…songs performed with forceful vocals and near perfect instrumental harmonies.”
