Bye Bye Blackbird is a 1993 jazz album by Keith Jarrett's "Standards Trio". It was recorded in 1991 in tribute to Miles Davis, who had died two weeks earlier. It was released on the ECM label only in 1993, as ECM 1467. As in other works by the Keith Jarrett Trio, this is an album entirely made of jazz standards. There are, however, two tracks written (or improvised) by the trio for the occasion, as a homage to Davis: "For Miles" and "Blackbird, Bye Bye".
