Aztec Two-Step

RexFowler from Pittsfield, Maine, and NealShulman of New York City met one“open mike” night at a Boston folk club in 1971. They joined forces and Aztec Two-Step (named for a line from “A Coney Island of the Mind” by Beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti) was born. Signed by Elektra Records, Fowler and Shulman were in Los Angeles one year later finishing their debut album, “Aztec Two-Step.” The album quickly became a staple of FM and college radio and was the foundation for an acclaimed performing and recording career. The group’s 1986 release “Living in America” was named as the 1987 Best Folk Album at the New York Music Awards. Headliners in their own right, Aztec Two-Step has also appeared in concert with artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Talking Heads, Bill Cosby, The Beach Boys, Jackson Browne, and Bette Midler.
