Jeff Goldblum has released I Shouldn't Be Telling You This on Decca Records with his long-time band, the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra. Many famous people have indulged their passion for jazz music and released albums – some good and not so good – and a few should have stuck to the day job, so pressing play was a bit of a step into the unknown.

The music is not about spotlighting Jeff Goldblum, but rather what good jazz music is about: sharing and bringing out the excellent talents he has surrounded himself with in the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra and guest vocalists. There is a charm and quality to this music, whether you analyze it or just put it on play while you get on with your life.
