Alan Friedman is neither your typical guitarist nor your typical CPA. Having grown up listening to groups like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Toto, and guitarists like Jimi, Clapton, Beck, Bolin and (his bar-none favorite) Steve Lukather, he's fused his love of guitar and passion for hook & groove vocals tunes into this 1st CD entitled "The Test of Time."
Alan and his CPA firm are immersed in the music industry, which has allowed Alan to recruit some close friends on this CD. Bobby Kimball (lead singer of Toto), bassist Doug Wimbish, drummer Will Calhoun and vocalist Corey Glover (all of Living Colour fame), drummer Jonathan Mover (Alice Cooper, Joe Satriani, Aretha Franklin, etc.), singer Bernard Fowler (background vocalist of The Rolling Stones), bassist Dave Stoltz (Dickey Betts Band), guitarist Jeff Pevar (David Crosby, Graham Nash, Joe Cocker, etc.) and many others have contributed their musical talents to this varied CD of rock, funk, pop, fusion, country and power ballads.
The tunes on this CD were all written by Alan, with a few collaborations with keyboardist / songwriter Jeff Batter and one tune with singer Bobby Kimball. Amazingly, this CD was recorded during non-tax-season months over the past 7 years in Alan's basement studio, and mixed at NYC's Skyline Studios by ace-engineers Fran Flannery (Fuel, Aerosmith, Creed) and Danny Bernini (NRBQ, The Power Station, Mary J. Blige).
This CD has already created a "buzz" in Japan and Europe (due mostly to Alan's relationship with members of Toto), with the U.S. fans following right behind. Check out this CD; you'll think twice about accountants.
