In 1955 Herb Geller won the "New Star Award" from Down Beat Magazine and achieved worldwide recognition through his recordings with Clifford Brown. Later Herb worked in the bands of Louie Bellson and Benny Goodman.
Lorraine Geller died suddenly of a heart failure in 1958. They had seven years together.
During a tour through Brazil with the Benny Goodman Orchestra Geller decided not to return to the United States but instead stayed in São Paulo for six weeks playing Bossa Nova music at a local club until he departed on a ship to Europe.
This peace, "Alone Together" is an old favorite. The Gellers are joined by bassist Curtis Counce and drummer Lawrence Marable. This was recorded in August 1954.
