“Alone Together” is a timeless tune written by Arthur Schwartz with lyrics by Howard Dietz.
It was written for the 1932 Broadway musical “Flying Colors”. The first jazz recording of this tune was done by Artie Shaw in 1939.
This is a favorite of many jazz musicians because it has a great melody, great changes, and is a very flexible tune. One great way to try playing it is in a straight-eighth or Bossa Nova feel. This tune is most commonly played in the key of D minor.
