Abstract: We prove that a bounded analytic function $ f$ on the unit disk is in the little Bloch space if and only if the uniformly closed algebra on the disk generated by $ {H^\infty }$ and $ \overline f $ does not contain the complex conjugate of any interpolating Blaschke product. A version of this result is then used to prove that if $ f$ and $ g$ are bounded analytic functions on the unit disk such that the commutator $ {T_f}T_g^{\ast} - T_g^{\ast}{T_f}$ (here $ {T_f}$ denotes the operator of multiplication by $ f$ on the Bergman space of the disk) is compact, then $ (1 - \vert z{\vert^2})\min \{ \vert f' (z)\vert,\;\vert g' (z)\vert\} \to 0$ as $ \vert z\vert \uparrow 1$.
