Jeff Goldblum debut album is just in time for Christmas / The Straits Times

Bookmark and Share

Better known for his idiosyncratic screen presence, Jeff Goldblum is also an avid amateur pianist, who has been gigging in his home town of Los Angeles since the 1990s. His piano playing and slightly nasal tenor voice are pleasant, not ground-breaking. But his self-deprecating humour and willingness to concede the limelight to a succession of female guest vocalists, as well as better musicians, make this album a laid-back charmer. The live setting, in the hallowed Capitol Studios in Hollywood, captures the relaxed speakeasy vibe generated by Goldblum and his band.

THE CAPITOL STUDIOS SESSIONS - Jeff Goldblum and the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra/Decca gets 3.5 Stars. All this adds up to an album that you are likely to play more often than you would expect.       READ THE FULL Straits Times REVIEW
