Alone is an album by jazz musician Bill Evans, recorded in late 1968 for Verve Records. The actual year of release is unknown: some sources state 1968, others 1969 or 1970. The Grammy Award-winning Alone was Bill Evans' first single piano solo album following in the footsteps of his 1963 Verve session Conversations With Myself (three pianos overdubbed) and his 1967 Further Conversations with Myself, also on Verve (two pianos overdubbed). It has been reissued in various forms with additional tracks and alternate takes from sessions on September 23, October 8 and 21st. [1]
