The song this chapter is named after, "Alone Together", was introduced in the 1932 broadway musical "Flying Colors", but eventually was recorded as a jazz song by Artie Shaw in 1939 and went on to become a jazz standard, performed by many different artists including Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, Chet Baker, and many others.

Here's an old clip of Artie Shaw performing the original version in 1939:

And here's one of my favorite versions, a slower more intimate take on the song, performed by Chet Baker in 1959:
