“It Goes On and On” is the title and “It Goes On and On” is certainly the sentiment as Swedish keyboard player Mattias Roos comes roaring back with this stunning ten track collection that once again finds him at the top of his creative game.
Written, arranged and produced by Roos throughout, “It Goes On And On” is released on the Skytown Records label and follows his 2017 project “Movin’ Up”.
In common with this earlier effort it demonstrates to perfection the penchant he undoubtedly has for sublimely fusing smooth jazz grooves with an authentic old school vibe.
As well as being a solo artist and a ‘go-to’ keyboard player for several top-flight Swedish performers, many will know Roos as a founding member of the band Sowecothat he formed in 2011 with drummer Peter Gustavsson. Roos has carried some of that distinctive Soweco sound into what is now a burgeoning solo career but in doing so has fashioned an identity that is very much his own.
You can check out a clip from the album, the vibrant “Rising to the Top” which shows off Roos’ immaculate keys.
