Chet Baker Sextet – Alone Together (1959) from the Chet Baker album Chet.Chet Baker(t) Pepper Adams(bar.sax) Herbie Mann(flute) Bill Evans(p) Paul Chambers(b) Connie Kay(d)

Chet Baker Sextet

features tracks recorded by trumpeter Chet Baker in 1954 and 1957 for the Pacific Jazz label and released over the years on various albums, including the original Playboys date. These are stellar “West Coast”-style tracks reminiscent of the small group work Baker did with saxophonist Jerry Mulligan and featuring first class arrangements by Jack Montrose and Bob Zieff. However, the Zieff cuts feature an unusual for the period chamber-style group with French horn, bassoon, cello, bass clarinet, and bass. The result was softly angular and very modern for the time. Interestingly most of the tracks have remained largely unavailable until this collection. While there are far more influential Baker albums from the ’50s, Sextet is a beautiful album and a must-hear for Baker aficionados.

Alone Together

is a song composed by Arthur Schwartz with lyrics by Howard Dietz. It was introduced in the Broadway musical Flying Colors in 1932 by Jean Sargent.[1]

The song soon became a hit, with Leo Reisman and His Orchestra’s 1932 recording (vocal by Frank Luther) being the first to reach the charts. It has become a jazz standard. The first jazz musician to record the song was Artie Shaw in 1939.

Lyrics

“Alone Together”

Alone together, beyond the crowd
Above the world, we’re not too proud
To cling together, we’re strong
As long as we’re together

Alone together, the blinding rain
The starless night, were not in vain
For we’re together and what is there
To fear together

Our love is as deep as the sea
Our love is as great as a love can be
And we can weather the great unknown
If we’re alone together
