Criminally Overlooked, Classic, Eclectic Modern Jazz,
This review is from: Expectations (Audio CD)
One of Jarrett's lesser-known albums but, IMO and by any standards, 2-discs' worth of unbridled freedom, joy and beauty.
At times spine-tinglingly romantic, free, rough or exploratory (sometimes even altogether) there is a lot of depth and breadth to this album - more so than in a lot of his later stuff, although this could easily be perceived as being the product of someone not yet sure where he is heading artistically and just throwing a bit of everything out there.
Perhaps not a must for fans of Jarrett's mammoth solo recordings or his ECM stuff, but essential for any lover of passionate, eclectic, unrestrained music and easily deserving of a high status in the vast discography of jazz.
