'Left Alone' is an album by American jazz pianist Mal Waldron recorded in 1959 and released on the Bethlehem label. "Left Alone" is Waldron's signature song and was co-written by Billie Holiday. The tracks "Left Alone" and "Catwalk" were released as two sides of a single, they both were given four-star reviews by Billboard. The album as a whole is a typically atmospheric Waldron trio date, but with what sounds like an extra helping of lyricism on Mal's part. This can be felt on a haunting version of "You Don't Know What Love Is," and a quite unrecognizable take on Sonny Rollins' "Airegin." Mal Waldron was Billie Holiday's regular accompanist from April 1957 until her death in July 1959.
