Gabriel Naïm Amor @ Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort and Spa
Jul 18 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Gabriel Naïm Amor (Standards)

Gabriel Naïm Amor is a French born, Parisian musician who moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1997. Joined by a classic jazz ensemble, Amor performs a mix of standards, French music, and originals. An active contributor to the local jazz, pop, and composition music scene, Amor has released nine records of original music. Through the experimental avant pop group, Amor Belhom Duo, he met and recorded with Joey Burns and John Convertino of the band Calexico in the late 1990s. In 2016, Gabriel Naïm released a collaboration with John Convertino (Calexico) called “The Western Suite and Siesta Songs”, a well-received record that is an atmospheric love letter of sorts to the Southwest. His newest album, “Moments Before”, was released in 2018 and melds his jazz and desert-rock sensibilities with a unique and unmistakable voice.  Gabriel Naïm Amor also composes film/short film soundtracks between recording his albums. He completed the score for the PBS documentary film “Precious Knowledge” which won two awards at the San Diego and Los Angeles Latino Film Festival.
