During the mid 1970's multi-instrumentalist Sam Rivers was at the forefront of the progressing jazz scene, running the famous jazz loft Studio Rivbea and also recording large and small ensembles for domestic and foreign labels.

This particular recording was with his regular trio of the time, supported by bassist Dave Holland and drummer Barry Altschul. This trio had been playing together for quite a while, and it really shows with the group turning on a dime, presenting a studio version of their continuous live performances of the period. Each of the four performances recorded here feature one of Rivers instruments, leading off his swirling, nasal soprano saxophone on “Expectation," before moving into the wide open and free flute led improvisation on “Vision."
