Matt Rollings

Matt Rollings was a late arrival to the MCA Master Series.  He only got one album in before the label shut down.  Rollings brought piano jazz, specifically “bop”, to the label.  Unlike the other jazz artists on the label, his style was much more frenetic, best illustrated on his opening song on the Premiere Collection Volume 2 sampler.


This album is high-energy piano jazz, commonly known as “bop”.  Another artist with a very similar style and a greater catalog of albums is Michel Camilo.

The artwork for the album is in the third design style, with a full-cover photograph.  The color bar and font styles are consistent with other albums, although the artist title had to be color-inverted to be shown.
