Recording Notes:

The Blue Hotel came about as a collaboration between playwright Michael Trocchia and The Shakes. The CD was recorded and released in conjunction with the world premiere of Trocchia’s stage adaptation of Stephen Crane’s short story, “The Blue Hotel,” and contains original and traditional music inspired by Crane’s story and Trocchia’s stage adaptation. The Blue Hotel stands on its own as an album and also serves as a thematic complement to the original story and the play.
