Alone together

Miles Davis did this tune on his Blue Moods album (1955), released on Charles Mingus' Debut Records label. It brings Davis together with Mingus on bass, trombonist Britt Woodman, vibraphonist Teddy Charles, and drummer Elvin Jones. The arrangement of "Alone Together" is by Mingus, while the other tracks were arranged by Charles. "Alone Together" was composed by Arthur Schwartz with lyrics by Howard Dietz. It was introduced in the Broadway musical Flying Colors in 1932 by Jean Sargent. The song soon became a hit, with Leo Reisman and His Orchestra's 1932 recording being the first to reach the charts. It is the most popular of Schwartz and Dietz's collaborations and has become a jazz standard.
