Dark Intervals is a live solo piano album by American pianist Keith Jarrett recorded in concert on April 11, 1987 in Tokyo's Suntory Hall and released on the ECM label in 1988.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Richard S. Ginell awarded the album 3 stars and states that "it sounds like a formal recital of individual compositions [...] Keith is often in an introspective, even dark mood [...] The Jarrett devotee will want this; others should use caution".[2] A review in the New York Times called Jarrett's playing on this album "more spare and austere than on his 1975 solo masterpiece The Köln Concert."[3]
