Goodbye is an album by Swedish pianist Bobo Stenson recorded in 2004 and released on the ECM label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 3½ stars stating "Goodbye is one of, if not the most expansive and diverse collections pianist Bobo Stenson has ever released... Goodbye is more a recording of songs than jazz pieces -- at least in a traditional sense. This trio doesn't swing, they play, they slowly dance through the lyric pieces found here".[2]
