..Growing up the son of artistic parents, Friedman learned to play guitar at age 7, and learned about music from his two older brothers, who were heavy into blues and folk, and his father who would blast jazz standards and classical music on the family’s hi-fi on Saturday and Sunday mornings. After traveling a zig-zagging open road that took him across the country; first to the desert southwest, then to Colorado as a ski bum, then on to NYC for a stint in a touring band and an engineering position at a commercial recording studio, Roger chose a more traditional path and spent twenty years building and running a successful mannequin/display business. Working with some of the most creative designers in the world, he traveled the globe designing and producing displays for a long list of luxury retailers like Calvin Klein, The Gap and Macy’s. Along the way he met and married the love of his life. It was only after the loss of his father and mother in 2004 and 2006 respectively, and the birth of his daughter in 2006, that he was struck by the realization that his passion and talent for writing, performing and recording songs had not gone away. nor had his muse. “It had been locked away in a forgotten place, like a keepsake you put into the back of a cabinet only to discover it years later looking as good as new. like a shiny old object.” Friedman says. Nine years ago he tapped into that passion once again, writing and performing in and around Brooklyn and discovering something precious that had been misplaced, but was now found and cherished more than ever…

This is my third CD to be registered with CD Baby. The first was in 2002 and the second was in 2004, so I’m glad to be back! For biographical information about me you could check out the first one here at CD Baby which was Way Over Yonder under Ron Wheeler by search or at www.cdbaby.com/cd/wheeler or the second one here called All Over The Map under Ronnie Jay Wheeler with the URL www.cdbaby.com/wheeler2 or my website www.ronniejaywheelermusic.com.
Most recently I’ve been running my record store, Alley Records, in Oklahoma City and playing music out and about with my friend and lead guitar player Jack Ardis. While out in Santa Fe during Ethnographic weekend this past summer, a friend of mine, Freddy Lopez, who plays harmonica, was showing me a few record stores I hadn’t been aware of. When that was over, he mentioned there was something else he wanted to show me. . .he took me out to west Santa Fe on a hill top to see a recording studio called Frogville. I was blown away by what I saw. A great place with an inviting ambiance to which I was greatly attracted. Long story short, I had intuition, the stars were aligned for this Moon Child, the Holy Spirit was affirmative to it, numbers were speaking to me, I could finally afford to do another self-released CD, and Bill Palmer the engineer and his partner JC Treadwell reassured me we could do it fast and simple and my way! We came back out October 7-11 and 15th and 16 and it was done. It was mostly a magical, mystical, and spiritual time with wonderful, happy people helping me. I think it’s the best record I’ve made. Hope you enjoy the CD, too!

R&B is straight out of the Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee book — a set of stripped-down acoustic blues. Roy Rogers and Norton Buffalo both play with surprising grit and unsurprising affection, making it a very pleasurable tribute.

Revolution and dance go hand in hand on the first-ever worldwide release of funaná artist Bitori’s legendary 1997 album Legend of Funaná, his first and only recording to date in a decades-long career of fighting colonial rule through lively accordion tunes.
At first, it’s hard to imagine such a bright, colorful style of music being forbidden anywhere outside of that town from Footloose; each song is quick, earthy, and uncomplicated. Still, funaná artists could expect to be jailed and tortured for their performances under Portuguese colonial rule in Cabo Verde, as strong a symbol as it is and was of national identity and the desire for independence from imperialism. Bitori’s songs, now classics, laid the foundation for the movement with raw…
…and rural sounds and repetitive choruses. Simple melodies and unstoppable rhythms back Chando Graciosa’s spirited vocals, the perfect combination for eight explosive songs of struggle. The accordion, of course, is not for everyone. Many will appreciate Bitori’s historical relevance but get bored after the first few squeezes of the box, as tight and squeaky clean as they often sound. There’s no getting around this on Legend of Funaná, an album completely dependent on that instrument, nor should there be. Everything about funaná is loud and proud, especially those keys.
Opening track “Bitori Nha Bibinha” hits the ground running, a veritable whirlwind that hits dizzying speeds and sees Graciosa’s voice at its strongest and loudest. It embraces the best of funaná, the tropical percussion and droning melody that make it easy to dance to, a perfect introduction to the genre. From that point forward, moods vary. “Rabelado” has a mid-tempo groove to it, while “Cruz Di Pico” is aggressive and agitated, playing at a fever pitch while words pouring from the depths of Graciosa’s soul. Backing vocals also enter on “Cruz Di Pico” to further enhance the sense of community and strength throughout the album, making it a little clearer just how funaná could have stirred up the masses and posed a threat to their invaders.
Other tracks are a little slower, and it’s best when these fade into the background. “Munana” sways with a touch of melancholy, and while it’s prettier than many of the other tracks, it’s also too slow to dance to, losing charm with each iteration of the main musical line. It’s easier on the ears to turn those tracks down after a while.
Legend of Funaná ends with some great build up and a wonderful high note in the form of “Didi Di Réz”, where the interplay between syncopated drumbeats and vocals dominates and fascinates. At times on this final song, Graciosa sounds like a Cuban big band singer from the 1930s, soaring above the accordion with his own graceful melody.
The funaná sound is a specific one, an important one to the islands of Cabo Verde, and one never better than coming from the fiery, masterful hands of Bitori. One origin story states that funaná developed when the Portuguese tried to spread Western music styles by introducing the accordion, an attempt to pull Cabo Verde closer, culturally, to Europe. If that is the truth, it’s a plan that backfired gloriously. Legend of Funaná may not be an album good for heavy, start-to-finish listening, but it demonstrates the full range and spirit of the funaná form with flying colors.
