Hotel Amour is the musical love affair between Pink Martini bandleader Thomas Lauderdale and the crowd-surfing post-modern diva Meow Meow, backed by members of Pink Martini. These two friends have performed and composed together across the globe for years, from the backstreet bars of Berlin to the glamorous stage of the Sydney Opera House, from London's legendary Royal Albert Hall to Mary's Club, Portland's legendary strip club. Hotel Amour features several sparkling originals alongside exquisite journeys into the French, German and Shanghainese canon of the 20th century, with alluring tastes of the 1920s and 30s, bittersweet tragedy, humor, politics, witty Weimar, and aching French torch song. And the album includes joyful duets with fabulous guests, including Rufus Wainwright, Barry Humphries (of Dame Edna fame), and The von Trapps, as well as a very special live recording with the legendary late French pianist and composer Michel Legrand.
