Hours After is an album by American composer, bandleader and keyboardist Sun Ra recorded in 1986 in Italy and released on the Black Saint label in 1989.[1] The album was recorded at the same sessions the produced Reflections in Blue which was released in 1987.


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars and stated "On this continually interesting program, Sun Ra and his Arkestra perform typically odd versions of a couple of standards, a swinging original, and two outside pieces. Almost up to the level of Reflections In Blue (recorded during the same two-day period), this date features one of the stronger versions of Ra's band... Recommended.".[2]
