The acoustic duo Aztec Two-Step has been making amazing music together since 1971. That’s when two individual singer songwriters, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman, joined forces after meeting in a coffee house in Boston. They took their name from a Lawrence Ferlinghetti poem and recorded
the first song ever written about Jack Kerouac’s iconic American novel, On The Road.
“If you cared about the music,” legendary DJ Pete Fornatale said in the documentary above, “you were always on the lookout for that fresh new sound… but that also had the potential to lunch new careers. And I always viewed the debut album by Aztec Two-Step as one of those records.”
To commemorate their 40th anniversary year, 2012 brings the official release of Fowler & Shulman’s studio CD Cause & Effect. Listen here.
