Biography

In the early '70s, Azteca's many members fused Latin Rock, Funk and Fusion into something altogether different and exciting. Rippling waves of percussion and a stunning rhythm section held down a foundation over which blaring horns and woodwinds spouted melodies. Though much of their music was instrumental, Latin refrains lent a festive air, and songs such as "Can't Take the Funk Out of Me" were fairly self-explanatory. Most of the astounding players were involved in other classic projects around the same time: percussionist Pete Escovedo and electric guitarist Neal Schon had been with Santana, bassist Paul Jackson was in Herbie Hancock's Headhunters, and drummer Lenny White moved in and out of Fusion groups featuring the likes of Miles Davis and Joe Henderson.
