Keith Jarrett
(b. 5/8/45 - Allentown, PA)

Title: Expectations
Personnel: Keith Jarrett (piano), Dewey Redman (tenor saxophone), Sam Brown (guitar), Charlie Haden (bass), Paul Motian (drums), Airto Moreira (percussion), strings and brass.
Recorded: 1971
Label: Columbia
Comments: After making his name first with the Charles Lloyd Quartet (see below), Keith Jarrett has embarked on an incredibly prolific career. This CD is a unique document in a special moment in jazz as the transition into the fusion sounds of the 70's was taking place. With strings arranged by Jarrett on a few of the songs, this CD stands out as a statement of individuality...very, very interesting music.
Title: Charles Lloyd - Forest Flower
Personnel: Keith Jarrett (piano), Charles Lloyd (tenor saxophone), Cecil McZee (bass), Jack DeJohnette (drums).
Recorded: 1967
Label: Atlantic
Comments: This quartet was important not only for it's great music, but that it also launched the career of Keith Jarrett and Jack DeJohnette. Raucous and vibrant, this CD showcases the young talent of the day. Interesting to note, too, that it went on to sell over 1,000,000 copies...just unheard of in the world of jazz releases.

Title:  Standards, Volume 1
Personnel: Keith Jarrett (piano), Gary Peacock (bass), Jack DeJohnette (drums).
Recorded: 1989
Label: Columbia
Comments: This trio has recorded over 15 CD's over the past 15 years or so. Each one is truly terrific and worth buying. We picked this one since it started this series of great music as just one example to showcase the greatness of these three musicians' unique approach to music in general and piano trio specifically.
