Most people know actor Jeff Goldblum for his starring roles in “Jurassic Park” and “Independence Day.” He also did a brief Film stint as “The Fly.” However, the 60-year-old actor also has other talents, including playing jazz piano [VIDEO].

Goldblum decided to promote his new, upcoming jazz album, “The Capital Studios Sessions,” by playing piano in front of a surprised crowd of commuters at the St. Pancras International Station. Delighted people gathered around the piano as he smiled, waved and played.

Commuters surprised at St. Pancras Station

Jeff Goldblum always enjoys an audience, whether for his past movies or while playing jazz.

Wednesday was a special treat for Londoners by Goldblum, who was promoting his new jazz album, “The Capital Studios Sessions.”

Using Elton John’s legendary public piano on the main concourse of the station, Goldblum belted out some of the tunes from his album. He also spent time waving, smiling and exchanging banter with the surrounding audience. At one stage he broke off a jazz tune to play “God Save the Queen” and even started a sing-a-long with the thrilled commuters.

As reported by the Evening Standard, Goldblum admitted to the audience that he loves “playing out and about,” because you never know who you might meet.

He added that music is known to “soothe the savage breast,” adding, or is that “beast?”

Giant statue of Jeff Goldblum in Potters Field Park

As noted by NME, while he was in London, the actor/jazz musician also gave his approval of the massive, bare-chested 25 ft statue [VIDEO] of himself in the role of Dr. Ian Malcolm in “Jurassic Park.”

The statue was placed in Potters Field Park earlier this summer. It was erected to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first “Jurassic Park” film.

When compared to the following image, it seems it was a good likeness of Goldblum in the film.

The actor and musician admitted that he hasn’t seen the statue itself, but has seen pictures of it. He said he liked it, saying he thinks they took the statue down. Goldblum says he believes the statue is now doing some kind of tour, something like the treasures found in King Tutankhamun’s tomb. He said he hopes it is doing a tour, so everyone gets a chance to view is at some time or another.

Besides his unexpected jazz concert and sing-a-long at St. Pancras Station, Goldblum had other business in the country’s capital on Wednesday, where he was attending the GQ awards that very night. He will be coming back to London in November this year, when he will be performing tracks from the new album, “The Capital Studios Sessions,” at Cadogan Hall.
