Gene ammons goodbye

Goodbye is the final album by saxophonist Gene Ammons recorded in 1974 and released on the Prestige label.



The Allmusic review stated "It is ironic that on tenor saxophonist Gene Ammons' final recording date, the last song he performed was the standard "Goodbye." That emotional rendition is the high point of this session... It's a fine ending to a colorful career".
