“I’m crying with ecstasy over this new album. Creatively, I’m happy as a clam. This collection of cohorts (cream of the crop), with whom I get to cavort, is outa this cosmos. Ouch, my crackling cranium! I’m crowing!!!” – Jeff Goldblum

After his live set being hailed as one of Glastonbury 2019’s most iconic moments this summer, Jeff Goldblum today releases his second studio album. With his long-time band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, the enticingly-titled album ‘I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This’ is out now on Decca Records and features an impressive array of surprising duet guests.

 

With last year’s debut – which was met with glowing reviews and landed the Hollywood icon a No.1 jazz album in both the UK and US – Goldblum was described in The Times as performing an important service by "reminding us that jazz should be allowed to be fun". With playing that is “as loose and improvisational as his acting” (Daily Telegraph) Goldblum yet again brings his on-screen charisma and eccentricities to the piano, with a style that is totally unique.

 

And this time, we are treated not only to his piano-playing skills but to his incredibly distinctive voice, as the man himself takes centre stage to sing ‘Little Man, You’ve Had A Busy Day’. First released on Decca in 1934, it is here particularly poignant coming from the father of two young Goldblum sons.

 

But before his closing lullaby, Goldblum has assembled an extraordinary gang of vocalists from all walks of musical life, some of whom reveal their jazz voices for the very first time. Following the triumphant Glastonbury performance, acclaimed singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten stars on the first single, Irving Berlin’s classic number ‘Let’s Face The Music and Dance’. Then, perhaps even more unexpected, joining Jeff for the sultry single ‘The Thrill Is Gone’ is none other than pop sensation Miley Cyrus

 

The star line-up goes on. Grammy-winning singing sensation Gregory Porter brings his irresistible velvet voice to the second single ‘Make Someone Happy’ as the pair are reunited, after first performing together on BBC One’s Graham Norton Show. Brit Award and Mercury Prize nominee Anna Calvi lends her smoky vocals to a clever mash-up of Wes Montgomery’s ‘Four on Six’ and Marianne Faithful’s ‘Broken English’. The 1954 Frank Sinatra hit ‘Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me’ features Grammy Award-winning Fiona Apple, Sonny & Cher favourite ‘The Beat Goes On’ is sung by American singer-songwriter Inara George, and the 1939 hit ‘If I Knew Then’ is recorded here with one of LA’s most in demand jazz singers,Gina Saputo

 

In between the variety of world-class vocalists, instrumental tracks such as Herbie Hancock’s ‘Driftin’ and Lalo Schifrin’s ‘The Cat’ show off the band’s dazzling jazz licks.

 

The album cover image was shot at Frank Sinatra’s house and shows Goldblum playing the white baby-grand on a floating stage in the middle of the piano shaped swimming pool.

 

Recorded in the heart of Hollywood, at Henson Recording Studios (home to records from Herb Alpert, John Lennon, The Carpenters, Joni Mitchell and Carole King), with ‘I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This’ Jeff Goldblum and The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra again deliver the feel and the swing like no one else.

I can sense the Thrill is not only Gone, it might have never been There in the first place.

I like that it's on Decca, just like Brenda Lee.

If if his music skills are like his acting ability, one should have low expectations for this CD.

Goldblum was good in The Fly. His musical ability I have no expectations for.

I saw him at Glastonbury, much too trad and big band by numbers for me but it was a fun show and he is nothing if not charming!

I'm still trying to get the dreadful 1977 film Between the Lines out of my mind, though I walked out after 20 minutes or so of pure crap.

1977 was a long time ago, maybe?
