A Jurassic Park and American Idol crossover the world never expected.
Famous actor and musician Jeff Goldblum is releasing a jazz album this fall (November 9th) with the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra titled The Capitol Studio Sessions.
Jeff posted to his Facebook page: “I HAVE AN ALBUM COMING OUT! The Capitol Studios Sessions will be released on November 9th and you can pre-order it now! Playing the piano is a huge passion of mine, and I am delighted to share this music with you all. There are two songs from the album out today too – Cantaloupe Island and ‘My Baby Just Cares For Me’ featuring Haley Reinhart – go listen now!”

Haley Reinhart reunited with Casey Abrams for the Jazz in the Pines festival in Idyllwild, California on August 12, 2018. Haley last performed with Casey at his Alma Mater back in 2016. This year, Idyllwild Arts not only celebrated it’s 25th year and one of it’s esteemed educators, Marshall Hawkins; it also wanted to give thanks to the firefighters and first responders that helped save the school from the Cranston forest fires.
Haley and Casey reprised their Iconic American Idol Duet “Moanin'” live for the first time in ages.
Another classic that made the set was their Zombies cover, “Time of The Season”, which Casey featured on from Haley’s third album, What’s That Sound?
Other highlights of the afternoon include performing with Casey at #JazzinthePines2018, Idyllwild Arts’ alumnist, Nora Germain, who joined Casey in a bass/violin duet of the Flintones’ Theme Song. Additional guest musician for the day included Jeremy Bieber, John Newmnan, Barnaby Finch, Bob Hamilton & Kelly Corbin.
The entire cast of musicians, including Haley, came back on stage at the end to perform Casey’s song “Cougar Town”.
It’s been seven years since Steven Tyler was a judge on Haley Reinhart’s season of American Idol. The two of them always seemed to have a special connection right from the start, and Steven always recognized Haley for her true talent.
Since Season 10 ended, Haley has kept in touch with Steven over the years. They both share the same lawyer, Dina LaPolt, and she recently attended his inaugural charity event called “Janie’s Fund”.
Now, Haley is set to open for Steven Tyler and the Loving Mary Band at Ribfest in Naperville, IL Saturday July 7th!
A night full of special guests, new songs, and a whole lot of Rock and Roll, Haley Reinhart put on one hell of a (sold out) show for those at Hollywood’s Troubadour late last Thursday night. It was her second show at the historic venue, where she hasn’t headlined since July of 2015. Opening for Haley were artists Steffan Argus and Drew Dolan.
Her first big solo public performance of the year was one for the books, where Haley brought fan favorites to the stage including, “Oh My!” for the first time in ages, this time including the rap bridge, but done in a style uniquely “Haley”. On several songs, Haley brought the crowd into the performance as they sung along on songs like “Let’s Start”, “Expensive Taste”, and “Light My Fire”.
Among the guest performers, Catie Turner from ABC’s debut season of American Idol, joined Haley on a duet of a Britney Spears classic, “Oops!… I Did It Again”. Scott Bradlee, creator of Postmodern Jukebox, was on keys.
Scott also accompanied the stage for “Sunny Afternoon”, from Haley’s third studio album, What’s That Sound? which he featured on. And of course, “Creep”.
All the way from Chicago, parents Harry and Patti-Miller Reinhart joined their daughter on stage to perform a few songs, including a three part harmony “Centerpiece”, and a mom-daughter duet of “White Rabbit”.
The Troubadour was the perfect place to premiere a new original song, a rousing and rollicking balls out, and possibly her hardest hitting song to date (sure to please the rocker fans), “Expensive Taste”.
One of the top highlights of the night was when Haley brought out her final special guest, Robby Krieger of The Doors to perform “Light My Fire”, which Robby wrote when he was just a teenager. It was truly a special moment to witness.
