Hi-Res
One year after having proved that he wasn’t ONLY an actor, Jeff Goldblum releases here a second swing-soaked jazz album and much like his first it’s delivered with class, humour and nonchalance by people who are… well, classy. Like on Capitol Studios Sessions released in 2018, the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra once again features on I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This while Goldblum is still behind his piano, unveiling glittering covers of jazz standards and 50s/60s pop. On some tracks, he hands the mic over to Sharon Van Etten (Let’s Face The Music And Dance), Anna Calvi, (Four on Six / Broken English), Fiona Apple (Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me), Inara George (The Beat Goes On), Gina Saputo (If I Knew Then), Gregory Porter (Make Someone Happy) and Miley Cyrus (The Thrill Is Gone/Django). The eleven songs on I Shouldn't Be Telling You This make you feel as though you’re sipping an olive-garnished Martini, dressed in a silk bathrobe, sat by an enormous pool in a Hollywood villa in Hollywood. And throughout the record, Jeff Goldblum ensures that the king’s swing, timeless swing, that of the American Dream and post-war America are at the heart of the matter. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

Vocal Jazz - Released November 9, 2018 | Decca (UMO)

If there's one word that comes to mind while listening to 2018's The Capitol Studio Sessions -- the debut album from part-time jazz pianist and full-time Jeff Goldblum impersonator Jeff Goldblum -- it's charm. Joking aside, just as with his acting, Goldblum's musical stage presence percolates with his unmistakable charisma, and further cements his long-standing persona as a witty, quirky, gregarious presence. While the album often feels like Goldblum giving one big wink and a smile to his adoring fans after another, part of the fun is that he has the chops to back it up. Having studied piano growing up in Pittsburgh and played lounge gigs throughout much of his career, Goldblum is certainly a gifted performer. While he hands much of the improvisational work over to his bandmates, as a bandleader he acquits himself ably throughout the album, with a warm harmonic sensibility and wonderfully swinging style on full display. Here, he is captured live at the storied Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, backed by his longtime ensemble of studio-pros the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra (lovingly named after a family friend in Pittsburgh). Joining him are a select cadre of special guests including singers Haley Reinhart and Imelda May, trumpeter Till Bronner, and on the giddy, self-referential duet "Me and My Shadow," singer/comedian Sarah Silverman. While Goldblum is the main attraction, he smartly spreads the spotlight, allowing Reinhart and May to sashay their ways through saucy renditions of "My Baby Just Cares For Me," "Straighten Up and Fly Right," and "Come-On-A-My-House." Similarly, he gives Bronner a plethora of solo time, with tracks like the ballad "It Never Entered My Mind," and the organ-accented groover "Don't Mess with Mister T.” One of the many impressive aspects of the Capitol Studio Sessions is just how balanced Goldblum's skills are as he deftly moves his audience from perky vocal standards to swinging instrumental numbers -- each transition aided, of course, with some very charming stage banter. ~ Matt Collar
