No More Tears (For Lady Day) is an album by jazz pianist Mal Waldron recorded in West Germany and released on the Dutch Timeless label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Steve Loewy awarded the album 4 stars stating "The pianist is in a somber mood, perhaps because of the theme, though his performance is up to his usually high standards... The delightful ambience of the trio results in a laid-back atmosphere that soothes and calms. A fine antidote to a stressful world and a lovely tribute to Lady Day".[2]
