Naim Amor and John Convertino

The Western Suite and Siesta Son

The Western Suite and Siesta Songs, the first release by newly formed duo Naïm Amor & John Convertino, is theperfect soundtrack to a drive through the desert Southwest. The thin, straight line of the road, unending to thehorizon; dark, distant rainclouds hovering far ahead and above; the feel of the heat on the asphalt; and most of allthe space... Space and time have come together here to create an environment unequaled elsewhere in elegance andbeauty. This duo have created a classic record matching those desert roads and views of Arizona, New Mexico andWest Texas. John Convertino recorded the initial tracks in a big room, alone, direct to four track, managing with very simple equipment to capture piano, accordion, and incredible analog drum sounds Those master cassette tapes weremailed to Amor, who added arrangements and his signature guitar style. Each musician needed each other to finish theseworks—Amor’s brittle electric guitar stabs, lyrical acoustic guitar playing, and cirrus cloud lap steel combine with thehovering space echoes and rattlesnake hiss / thunderous boom of Convertino’s drums to create an epic sequenceof themes and variations. These compositions conjure up not only vivid scenes and vistas, but also characters, andmoments in lives. The Western Suite And Siesta Songs is a masterpiece of Southwestern music, an album that couldbe the soundtrack to the best Western film since Once Upon a Time in the West.
