with The Mildred
for The Performing Arts
Friday 9/20/2019 8:00 PM
Jeff Goldblum and his jazz ensemble make their way to America's Energy City this weekend at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts.
He has starred in some of Hollywood's most highest-grossing films, Jurassic Park (1993) and Independence Day (1996), as well as their respective sequels, The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018), and Independence Day: Resurgence (2016).
The actor has always said if he didn't study acting, he most likely would have become a jazz musician. We think this is what he is doing now and is worth a ticket to Jones Hall this weekend, September 20, 2019.
With an acting career spanning four decades and film credits that were box office gold, Goldblum will bring an evening of jazz standards to Jones Hall. Goldblum and his band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, released their first album in November 2018, which quickly became the number one selling jazz album on the Billboard charts. Jeff Goldblum and The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra will play hits, such as Straighten Up and Fly Right, Nostalgia in Times Square, Cantaloupe Island and more!
The jazz ensemble has some veteran music makers with John Storie as one of them. Storie recently spoke to David Edward Perry of Broadway World.com.
David Perry -You guys flew off and played the Glastonbury Festival in England right after leaving Birmingham. How does it feel to be home?
John Storie - (Laughs) We have a little bit of time off until September. That's when we will get back to it. Jeff has a bunch of filming he's doing right now. We are all working really hard on the next Mildred Snitzer Orchestra record with him that will be released later this year. The show keeps evolving. We keep trying a whole bunch of new stuff with him. I've been with them for almost 8 years now it's amazing how much the show has evolved since then.
Storie has been working as a professional musician, teaching, and is just about to release his first solo album "Ponderosa". He has previously done nine records with many artists including Gwen Stefani, and his guitar trio New West Group. Storie's upcoming jazz album "Ponderosa" is a duo album with notable jazz pianist Josh Nelson.
Storie will be with Goldblum with other members of The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra this weekend at Jones Hall.
