Hollywood icon Jeff Goldblum sent last weekend's Glastonbury attendees back to the 90s as he and the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra gifted them a little rendition of the classic Jurrasic Park theme.
Towards the end of the set, the 66-year-old stood up to thank the crowd. His trumpet player then burst into (Jurassic) song, encouraging the rest of the orchestra to join in, much to the delight of the crowd.
And so they did.
And what a glorious moment it was, to be taken back to a real golden age of filmmaking.

Goldblum, who has starred in north of 70 films, has been playing jazz piano for years. After accompanying soul-jazz star Gregory Porter on BBC’s Graham Norton Show in 2017, Goldblum’s distinctive style and natural feel for the piano caught the attention of Decca record executives, who immediately travelled to Los Angeles to meet with him.
He had a record deal in no time.
