Pittsburgh Today Live co-host David Highfield had a chance to interview Goldblum about coming home. The musician will be in concert Thursday evening at the Carnegie Library of Homestead Music Hall. Goldblum performed playing the piano with his Mildred Snitzer Orchestra.

Goldblum told KDKA's David Highfield that his love of Jazz started young, he even remembers booking a job playing piano as a teenager.

"So, I locked the door and got the Yellow Pages, the only then access to making contact with telephone numbers, and I looked up cocktail lounges and went from A to Z and called up, I thought I was being scammy in some way and said, 'Hey, I understand you need a piano player.'" Most of them would say 'No, I don't know where you heard that,'" he said.
