"As far as I can tell, everyone loves Jeff Goldblum," Decca's director of A&R Tom Lewis said in a statement, per a Billboard report. "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. If we can take Jeff's music into people's homes then we will be helping, in our own small way, to make the world a happier place."
Goldblum has apparently been performing intermittently since the '90s with his own jazz group The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, and regularly pops into jazz clubs in Los Angeles, but this marks his first time signed to a record label, and his forthcoming album -- scheduled for release later this year -- will be his first.
