Talking to Jeff Goldblum is, in a word, delightful. Just like when he's acting, he peppers his conversation with mmm's and ahh's, little flourishes that make his speech almost musical. And so maybe it makes sense that he's been playing music almost his whole life – practicing piano since he was a kid, playing a jazz club residency for the last several years and releasing his first jazz album with his band, the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, back in 2018. The first album they put out, The Capitol Studios Sessions, went to the top of the jazz charts — and now Jeff Goldblum and the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra have returned with a new one called I Shouldn't Be Telling You This.

In this session, Jeff Goldblum joins me to talk about the assortment of famous guest vocalists he brought together for the project – and he somehow manages to get me to speak French. We kick off the session with the opening track from the new album, featuring Sharon Van Etten on vocals. Hear "Let's Face The Music And Dance" and more in the player above.
