Jeff Goldblum has quite the acting chops after delighting audiences in his own charmingly quirky way in movies like The Fly, Jurassic Park and Independence Day.

Did you know he is also a talented jazz pianist and band leader who is working on his debut album after signing with Universal's classical label Decca Records?

That's right the 65-year-old Goldblum is officially signed to the label and working on his debut album, due out later this year. The record execs where so impressed with a performance on British TV last year with Goldblum accompanying singer Gregory Porter that they flew out to Hollywood to sit down with the actor, Universal says in a press release.

For its part, Decca said in a statement about Goldblum,´ "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 been performing with his band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, since the early ‘90s. He got his start playing Pittsburgh cocktail lounges as a teen. He also is a regular fixture at LA's Rockwell Table and Stage, where he helms a jazz variety show.

Stay tuned to The 405 for more on the new album and on Goldblum’s latest cinematic incarnation – again as Dr. Ian Malcolm – in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, in UK theaters 6 June and American theaters 22 June.
