  1. Expectations

    Expectations is a 1972 album by the pianist, saxophonist and composer Keith Jarrett, released on Columbia Records. In addition to Jarrett, musicians on the recording include Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, Paul Motian, Sam Brown, Airto Moreira, as well as brass and string sections whose members are not credited in the album information. Expectations was 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.
