5.0 out of 5 stars Best thing he ever did., 9 Sep 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Expectations (Audio CD)
This may seem a bit bizarre, but I am starting to think this is probably the best thing he did in the 1970s. It is the only record I still play on a regular basis. His ECM stuff now seems a bit prissy, pompous and pretentious.
I own a lot of Jarrett from the 1970s. He and Mclaughlin were my favourite artists. The first thing I bought was Gary Burton & Keith Jarrett in 1972 (aged 15), Expectations was purchased in 1973. At the time I thought the latter an extremely weird record. It features Dewey Redman & Charlie Haden (ex-Ornette Coleman), Paul Motian (ex-Paul Bley / Bill Evans), Sam Brown (guitar) and Airto. Expectations is joyous but anarchic. Over the years it has grown on me. It is a strange mixture of classical and free jazz. It has some great tunes and also some outstanding playing. Expectations is clever and inventive, and was made before Jarrett took himself too seriously.
