Jeff Goldblum's 'I Shouldn't Be Telling You This' is an immensely pleasurable follow-up to The Capitol Studio Sessions / COS

Jeff Goldblum, ah, yes, Jeff, - and his trusty Mildred Snitzer Orchestra - transcend all of that once again on I Shouldn't Be Telling You This, an immensely pleasurable follow-up to The Capitol Studio Sessions. Goldblum is legitimate, a 30-year veteran of the ivories who's had a standing gig at LA's Rockwell Table and Stage for the last half-decade. A less confident player might have used his star status to force his way to the front, but Goldblum recognizes that jazz is not about the spotlight; it's about the interplay of the band as a whole.The Verdict: Goldblum does get his moment to shine, closing out the album singing "Little Man, You've Had a Busy Day". He's not Chet Baker, but he doesn't have to be; his vocal stylings are gentle and paternal in the warmest, sweetest way, a heartwarming lullaby for the adults left at the party.

The Capitol Studio Sessions could have very easily been a one-off vanity project, but with I Shouldn't Be Telling You This, Goldblum once again proves that the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra is one more way he can charm us all.

Essential Tracks: "Don't Worry ‘bout Me", "The Cat", and "Let's Face the Music and Dance"
