LONDON (Reuters) - Hollywood actor Jeff Goldblum has faced dinosaurs and aliens in his movie franchises, but on Wednesday he showed off a very different skill - playing jazz music.

The “Jurassic Park” and “Independence Day” actor surprised commuters at London’s St Pancras International train station by performing music from his forthcoming jazz album on a public piano.

Crowds gathered around the 65-year-old, who recorded “The Capitol Studios Sessions” with his band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, and they applauded his solo performance.

The album is released in November.
