The Western Suite and Siesta Songs, the first release by
newly formed duo Naïm Amor & John Convertino, is the
perfect soundtrack to a drive through the desert Southwest.
The thin, straight line of the road, unending to the
horizon; dark, distant rainclouds hovering far ahead and
above; the feel of the heat on the asphalt; and most of all
the space... Space and time have come together here to create
an environment unequaled elsewhere in elegance and
beauty. This duo have created a classic record matching
those desert roads and views of Arizona, New Mexico and
West 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 were
mailed to Amor, who added arrangements and his signature
guitar style. Each musician needed each other to finish these
works—Amor’s brittle electric guitar stabs, lyrical acoustic
guitar playing, and cirrus cloud lap steel combine with the
hovering space echoes and rattlesnake hiss / thunderous
boom of Convertino’s drums to create an epic sequence
of themes and variations. These compositions conjure up
not only vivid scenes and vistas, but also characters, and
moments in lives. The Western Suite And Siesta Songs is a
masterpiece of Southwestern music, an album that could
be the soundtrack to the best Western film since Once Upon
a Time in the West.
