Swedish musician, songwriter and producer Mattias Roos, a member
of the band Soweco, that he formed with drummer Peter Gustavsson,
started his solo career with the album My Story (2016).
Soon followed his second project Movin' Up (2017). Now he
is back with his third project with the aptly title It Goes On
And On (2019). Mattias builds on the proven cooperation with
the label Skytown Records.
Mattias Roos has written, arranged and produced all songs. He
performs piano, keyboards and also executes programming and
editing. He is supported on selected tracks by Fran Merante,
Wictor Persson (drums), Samuel Olofson, U-Nam (guitar), Greger
Hillman, Mikael Emilsson, Andrey Chmut (sax), Marcus Asplund
(trumpet), Jonathan Lundin, Samuel Lundell (bass).
I have to admit, I'm indulged by Keni Burke's Rising to the
Top. Mattias Roos doesn't cover this ancient hit, but offers
a modern musical concept which is been exceptionally engaged in
keyboard magic. Bring It On shows more of Mattias'

It's a Lovely Day is not a continuation of Bill Wither's
hit but has the same classy attitude. It Goes On and On
surprises with an abyssal deep synth bass and the most different
keyboard sounds. U-Nam delivers salt and pepper with his electric
guitar. When Matthias and U-Nam go into solo approaches, the whole
thing gets star quality.
Just Cruising is the favorite pastime of dynamic
Americans and Mattias attracts with a musical accompaniment of the
fine art. Party in my Backyard is obviously inspired by
Mezzoforte's music and shines with an abundance of melodic bliss.
Magical Nights is another prove of heartfelt artistry.
Back to You is not stingy with plentiful synth sounds
that accompany Mattias' refined piano theme. The romantic ballad
Spending My Time With You is graced by the great talent
of pianist Roos and saxophonist Andrey Chmut. Beautiful
Starlights shares the background synths of the previous tune
and seamlessly follows. Marcus Asplund brings in his signature
sound on the trumpet. The album closes with a radio edited version
of Rising to the Top.
Mattias Roos' technical brilliance is the main factor of his new
album It Goes On
And On. The incredible gifted piano prodigy surrounded by the
most talented Swedish musicians proves that good smooth jazz is
