Grand Casino Hotel


Mr. Waldeck proudly presents Grand Casino Hotel, his 6th studio album and by far his most cinematic. Over the last decade or so Waldeck has often taken an inspirational foray into a certain musical genre or epoque, the essence of which he took as blueprint for his own musical ventures: Let?s think of his "Ballroom Stories" (2007), considered to be one of the most influential albums of Electro Swing, "Gran Paradiso" (2016), his homage to spaghetti western and Italian canzone " then more recently Atlantic Ballroom" (2018) featuring jazz-flavoured crime fiction sounds of the late 1960ies. This time around Mr. Waldeck enters the realm of American road movies - in all its different shades and colors. A genre in which the journey is the reward and the reward is freedom. Listening to Grand Casino Hotel you will immediately find yourself drawn into images of dire desert landscapes, where cheap motels with defunct pools and endless highways outline the scenery. A decrepit casino building adjacent to our motel catches the eyes. One of the employees looks like a grumpy twin brother of Waldeck. Musical film d?auteur! Klaus Waldeck: Grand Casino Hotel is not just a "widescreen cinemascope sound track", it is a metaphor for the traveller, who - in search for a fast and lucky strike - fails to arrive at his place of longing. Recently, Waldeck's work was featured in movie and TV productions (among others, an episode of Grey's Anatomy and spots for Versace and Ferrero). Waldeck's music has been streamed over 100 million times.
