Starting with Chet Baker's satiny cover of "(Somewhere) Over the Rainbow," Jazz Music For: After Hours creates a quiet, subdued mood. It continues through the next track, "April in Paris," as performed by Coleman Hawkins, and keeps going all the way to the end. Highlights along the journey include "I'll Never Be the Same" by Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli, and the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, "Just a Mood" by the Red Norvo Sextet, Sonny Rollins' version of "'Round Midnight," and Paul Desmond's "Theme From 'Black Orpheus.'"
