After Hours is an album by jazz singer Jeanne Lee and pianist Mal Waldron, recorded in 1994 and released on the Owl label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow stated that "Waldron's accompaniment is typically rhythmic, creatively repetitive, brooding and personal. However it is Lee's haunting and highly expressive voice that really sticks in one's memory".[2] The Penguin Guide to Jazz described the album as "a standards session on which Lee does little more than sing the songs", and gave it three stars out of four.[3]
