Written by on 04/06/2022


Matt Rollings is a musical monster, with a resume that would make anyone envious. He’s played with Clint Black, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Richie Sambora and Peter Wolf, he’s produced records by Blues Traveler and Willie Nelson, won a Grammy for that very same Nelson album, played in Lyle Lovett’s Large Band, did several torus with Mark Knopfler
as his keyboardist, got nominated for two more Grammys and the list goes on. This one is just the abbreviated version. Long story short? 30 years later, Matt Rollings got around to following up his debut album Balconies. But forgive him—he’s been busy, A riveting and rootsy platter, Matt Rollings’ Mosaic is fabulous work. Featuring Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson Lyle Lovett, Alison Krauss, the Blind Boys of Alabama and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, the album is filled with finesse and groove and is one of the most refreshing, enlivening and satisfying albums in recent memory.
