Jeff Goldblum & The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra's fresh album, "The Capitol Studios Sessions," introduces listeners to another side of Goldblum, apart from his Hollywood acting. This album presents Goldblum, the jazz musician. "The Capitol Studios Sessions" is Goldblum's debut album but far from the beginning of his musical career. He has been performing piano and singing for live audiences in Los Angeles since the '90s, and this is only his latest exploration of the craft. Goldblum's band comes together to play loose, improvisational shows. It decided on "The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra" in honor of Goldblum's close family friend from Pittsburgh.

"The Capitol Studio Sessions" successfully portrays the sweet, sexy, silly, romantic messages the classics conveyed when they were first released, with dates ranging from the '20s to the mid-'80s. The band was in full force, and each vocalist avoids replicating others who have performed the songs. Each cover felt brand new and tailored to the artists' style, rather than like a revival attempt. No track on this album should be skipped. They all weave together to create the vivacious masterpiece that is "The Capitol Studios Sessions."
