NEW YORK (AP) — Jeff Goldblum is coming back to New York but not to act — he'll be singing.

The Cafe Carlyle said the "Jurassic Park" star will perform Sept. 16-20 with his jazz band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra.

The actor has sung and played piano with the band for years but the new dates mark their New York premiere. They're named for a friend of Goldblum's family.

The fall season at the Carlyle will also include sets by "It's Complicated" actress Rita Wilson from Sept. 24-Oct. 4, "The Breakfast Club" star Molly Ringwald from Oct. 7-18, and David Johansen, the alter ego of Buster Poindexter, from Oct. 21-25.

The legendary lounge inside the Hotel Carlyle is where Elaine Stritch and Bobby Short performed.
