|Keith Jarrett chronology|
Expectations is a 1971 recording by pianist, saxophonist and composer Keith Jarrett, released on Columbia Records. The recording features, in addition to Jarrett, tenor saxophonist Dewey Redman, bassist Charlie Haden, drummer Paul Motian, guitarist Sam Brown, percussionist Airto Moreira, and a brass section and a string section whose members are not credited in the album information; produced by George Avakian.
Expectations was the only recording Jarrett made under his own name on Columbia Records. Jarrett had been a member of Miles Davis' band, which recorded for Columbia, until shortly before making Expectations; the label subsequently signed him to his own contract, but subsequently broke the contract by dropping Jarrett after the record's release.
(Moreira and Motian both play drums on "The Circular Letter" and "Sundance")
