Aztec Two-Step with Rex Fowler and John Korba
As Neal takes an indefinite period of time off from touring after the passing of his beloved wife Karen, dont miss Rex as he welcomes musician extraordinaire John Korba (Hall and Oates, Rosanne Cash, Phoebe Snow, John Waite) on keyboards, guitar and vocals. This will be a show full of AZTEC TWO-STEP vintage fan favorites as well as songs from the newest ATS release Naked.

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 in Billboards year-end critics poll. They have been praised in countless major US newspapers and magazines, including Rolling Stone, and have appeared on numerous TV and radio shows, such as the David Letterman Show, the King Biscuit Flour Hour, and World Café Live.

Rex and Neal released their first live album "Highway Signs" on the PRIME-CD folk label in 1996 in celebration of their 25th anniversary. In 1999 they were the subjects of the documentary, No Hit Wonder, which aired on PBS. To commemorate their 30th anniversary in 2001, they released a double CD compilation entitled, Live & Rare and in 2005, released their career-defining Days of Horses CD to rave reviews. Of this release, the Boston Globe said, Fans of the duos harmony-driven tunes and easygoing acoustic guitar riffs will recognize their James Taylor-meets-Simon & Garfunkel sound. Whats new is the mood. This album sits back on its haunches as Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman look back wistfully at American pop culture and their own ride through it.

To commemorate their 40th Anniversary year, early 2012 brought the official release of Fowler & Shulmans studio CD Cause & Effect. The album is a combination of re-worked previously recorded songs and newly mined material. From John Platt of WFUV in New York, The secret of Aztec Two Step's longevity isn't just the harmony between Rex and Neal, it's also the quality of the songs. On "Cause and Effect" they revisit a lot of their repertoire with crisp acoustic arrangements. And while the songs were mostly inspired by a specific moment in time (Reaganomics, apartheid, John Lennon's assassination), they resonate anew today.

Their newest release is simply called Naked. and it remain true to form - revealing, transcending, and cool.
