Variety reports that actor Jeff Goldblum, of ‘Jurassic Park’ fame, is recording his first jazz album. Executives at the Decca Records label saw him playing piano with singer Gregory Porter on The Graham Norton Show, in the U.K., and made him an offer.
No real details have emerged yet as to what the album might entail (will it just be piano, or will he whip out a sax once in a while?), but Jeff tells the magazine: “I’m so happy to be in cahoots with the wonderful people at Decca, one of the coolest and most prestigious labels of all time.”
Jazz piano has long been a passion for the actor. He’s reportedly played shows every week in Los Angeles since the 1990s. Watch the video below for an impressive performance!
