NEW YORK (AP) — Jeff Goldblum is coming back to New York but not to act — he’ll be singing.
The Cafe Carlyle said the “Jurassic Park” and “The Fly” star will perform Sept. 16-20 with his jazz band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra.
The actor has sung and played piano with the band for years but the new dates mark their New York premiere. They’re named for a friend of Goldblum’s family and play improvised versions of jazz standards like “Summertime” or “The Sidewinder.”
The fall season at the Carlyle will also include sets by “It’s Complicated” actress Rita Wilson from Sept. 24-Oct. 4, “The Breakfast Club” star Molly Ringwald from Oct. 7-18, and David Johansen, whose alter ego is Buster Poindexter, from Oct. 21-25. Woody Allen and his jazz band play every Monday from Sept. 15-Dec. 15.
The legendary lounge inside the Hotel Carlyle on Manhattan’s Upper East Side is where Elaine Stritch, Chita Rivera and Bobby Short have performed.
