Hollywood icon Jeff Goldblum and long-time band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, celebrated hitting the UK Jazz & Blues Album top spot, with debut album ‘The Capitol Studios Sessions”.
On hearing the news, a stunned Goldblum commented, “Excelsior!! I’m happy as a clam!”
Goldblum has been playing the piano all his life and performing with his jazz band for the past 30 years, but it was only when he accompanied soul-jazz star Gregory Porter on BBC’s Graham Norton Show last year, that the actor’s distinctive style and natural feel for the piano caught the attention of Decca record executives, who suggested he make an album.
Tom Lewis, Director of A&R for Decca says, “It has been so exciting reading people’s comments on social media as they discover Jeff’s brilliant, life-affirming album. This record immediately brings a smile to your face, and there are lots of people who need that right now. For a start we’ve decided to bike a complimentary copy over to No.10!”
