Jeff Goldblum loves a spontaneous stunt, and if it involves surprise jazz, we’re all for it.
The professional purrer and beloved actor is about to release his first jazz album, The Capitol Studios Sessions, so he sprang a surprise set on commuters at London’s St Pancras International station on Wednesday morning.
Just weeks after London enjoyed a giant statue of Goldblum popping up by Tower Bridge, the man himself played a few tunes on the piano at St Pancras. And while the two events aren’t related (the statue wasn’t a promotion), this is some kind of Goldblum fiesta for Londoners.
Not only did Jeff Goldblum announce his new album today, he also stopped by at London’s St Pancras station to give a surprise performance!

Not everyone stopped though.
If you want to talk about the roots of our family conflict, know that my Dad just text us to say he’d walked past Jeff Goldblum playing a piano in St Pancras Station and ‘couldn’t be bothered’ to stop and watch him.

After many moons of performing at L.A.’s Rockwell Table and Stage, Goldblum’s first jazz album, The Capitol Studios Sessions, is out Sept. 16 through Universal Music Group’s Decca Records.
The album features longtime collaborators The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, and there’s a host of featured artists on the album including the inimitable Sarah Silverman, American Idol singer Haley Reinhart, Grammy-nominated trumpeter Till Brönner, and Irish star Imelda May.
His first single is called “Cantaloupe Island,” because of course it is.
