Night Lights is an album by saxophonist Gene Ammons recorded in 1970 and released on the Prestige label.[2]

Reception[edit]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars with its review by Scott Yanow stating, "One of his first recording sessions after he returned to the scene following a rather severe jail sentence was this tribute to Nat King Cole... was quickly forgotten as Ammons recorded some more commercial material and this set was not released for the first time until 1985. Ammons is in excellent form".[1]
