Variety has reported that Jeff Goldblum will record his first jazz album and release it on Decca Records. The album came about after the actor accompanied soul-jazz singer Gregory Porter
on the BBC talk show THE GRAHAM NORTON SHOW last October while promoting his film Thor: Ragnarok. Goldblum's skills caught the attention of Decca executives during the episode.
"I'm so happy to be in cahoots with the wonderful people at Decca, one of the coolest and most prestigious labels of all time," Goldblum said.
"As far as I can tell, everyone loves Jeff Goldblum. It's like a universal truth," said Tom Lewis, director of A&R for Decca. "We are delighted to welcome him to Decca. He's a fantastic jazz pianist, a great band leader and just about the loveliest man in the world. His love of jazz is infectious and whenever he plays he makes you feel very happy."
Jeff Goldblum is an American actor and musician. He has starred in some of the highest-grossing films of his era, Jurassic Park (1993) and Independence Day (1996), as well as their sequels, The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), Independence Day: Resurgence (2016), and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018).
