AZTECA,
formed in 1972 in Oakland, was the vision of brothers Coke and Pete Escovedo
following their successful time playing along side Latin-funk trailblazers,
Santana. They are widely regarded to be the first large-scale group that
combined multiple musical elements centred around and built as a Latin
orchestra.
Born
in the legendary Bay Area of San Francisco, Pete and Coke Escovedo grew up
immersed in the Latin music so prevalent on the East coast of the US.
Influences of Mambo and Salsa bred their love of percussion and they organised
mambo sessions to hone their vocal and percussive skills surrounded by local
musicians who played in the Caribbean style that captivated their musical
passion.
Sometimes
numbering up to 25 members on stage, AZTECA fused an array of musical styles
and instruments ranging from horns, woodwinds, guitars, drums and multiple
keyboards, percussionists and vocalists.
AZTECA
featured a wealth of successful musicians including bassist Paul Jackson, known
for his work on numerous Herbie Hancock albums, drummer Lenny White who played
alongside some of the best Jazz artists of the time including Miles Davis,
Freddie Hubbard and Stanley Clarke. The line- up also included Grammy Award
Nominee, Tom Harrell.
