Go Together is an album of duets by American composer, bandleader and keyboardist Carla Bley and bassist Steve Swallow recorded and released on the Watt/ECM label in 1993.[1] It is the pair's second duet recording following Duets (1988).

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars and stated "A melodic but explorative player, Bley (whose use of space sometimes recalls Thelonious Monk) interacts closely with the electric bass of Steve Swallow on this excellent duet session".[2] The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded it 3 stars calling it "An intriguingly relaxed and unhurried survey of (mostly) older material".[3]
