Charles 'Don' Alias was an American jazz percussionist. Alias was best known for playing congas and other hand drums. He was, however, a capable drum kit performer: Alias played drums on the song "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down" from trumpeter Miles Davis's album Bitches Brew (1969) when neither Lenny White nor Jack DeJohnette were able to play the marching band-inspired rhythm requested by Davis.
