Hollywood icon and jazz pianist Jeff Goldblum and his long-time band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, unveil their highly anticipated debut album 'The Capitol Studios Sessions!'
Goldblum, who has been playing the piano since he was a child, has performed with his jazz band at venues in Los Angeles and New York City over the past few decades. When he's not filming, the actor hosts a weekly jazz variety show at LA's Rockwell Table and Stage. Frequented by locals and A-listers alike, the show intersperses Goldblum's love of jazz with his passion and skills at improvised comedy.
The atmosphere and energy of these shows is captured perfectly on this album, which Jeff credits to producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock, Madeleine Peyroux). For the recording, Larry recreated the buzz of The Rockwell at the legendary Capitol Studios.
Further, the album is the realization of this idea: jazz and standards presented in a manner that dares to be high-spirited and to make you feel good. The repertoire includes favourite '60s jazz numbers 'Cantaloupe Island' and 'I Wish I Knew (How It Would Feel To Be Free)', the 1940s classic 'Straighten Up & Fly Right' with guest vocals from Irish superstar singer and songwriter Imelda May, 'My Baby Just Cares For Me' from 1930, featuring American songstress Haley Reinhart and the 1920s song 'Me And My Shadow' sung by US comedian and actress, Sarah Silverman. The band are joined by the extraordinary Grammy-nominated trumpeter Till Brönner.
