Always Say Goodbye is an album by the American jazz bassist Charlie Haden's Quartet West recorded in 1993 and released on the Verve label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Daniel Gioffre awarded the album 4 stars stating "Always Say Goodbye is part of the continuing Quartet West project by Haden, in which the venerable bassist attempts to evoke the spirit of Hollywood circa 1930-1940... The results, though at first a little bit unsettling, are quite spectacular... Highly recommended".[2]
