Jeff Goldblum's life is like a jazz piece / CBS: SUNDAY MORNING

Jeff Goldblum's life is like a jazz piece: his acting improvisational, his style unpredictable. He's made an art of being offbeat. "I'm a strange figure," he told Anthony Mason, before turning the tables on his interviewer: "I like that hearty laugh. I'd like to hear you sing!" "Oh, no, you wouldn't," Mason said.

Goldblum has starred in two of the nineties' biggest blockbusters, as a computer geek who saves the planet in "Independence Day," and a math whiz who fights off dinosaurs in "Jurassic Park." Suddenly, at 66, he's become … a fashion icon, honored by In Style magazine just the night before he invited Mason into his closet, to examine his eye for the unusual, like the vintage frames he bought for his part in "Grand Budapest Hotel." Even his skills as a musician are finally getting recognition. Goldblum, who for 20 years has played a weekly gig at an L.A. jazz club with the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra (named for a family friend), will release his first album next week.
