On The Capitol Studios Sessions, Jeff Goldblum turns the studio into a club / RiFF magazine

Jeff Goldblum is a dish best served in person, but for anyone unable to attend one of his performances with the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, his long-in-the-making debut album evokes a comparable front-and-center experience. On The Capitol Studios Sessions, Goldblum turns the studio into a sophisticated club. He captures the warmness and personality of a live big band jazz performance while maintaining studio quality instrumental and vocal performances.

Much in the way Steve Martin has warmed up his audience to the world of bluegrass, Jeff Goldblum has built a not-so-secret second career of making jazz digestible to film fans. What he and the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra have made here can be appreciated by jazz veterans and casual listeners alike. Much of that has to do with the credibility of performers like singer-songwriter Imelda May and jazz trumpeter Till Brönner.
