“I wrote this song with Jack Tempchin in the middle ‘80s. I had done a record called The Allnighter, which was supposed to start when the sun went down and finish when the sun came up. We wrote After Hours to be the last song on that album. But something happened: once we got into Smuggler’s Blues and Sexy Girl and some other stuff, we abandoned this one.
“During the making of the album, I called Jack up and asked him if he wanted to come to LA and work on some songs and try to write a standard. He said, ‘Well, Glenn, I think we already did.’ I said, ‘What do you mean?’ and he said, ‘After Hours.’ I went, ‘Oh, God, you’re right!’
“I found one of our old demos for it, played it for Richard and Michael, and we all thought it fit. Then we thought it was a good title for the record, as well, so that’s how it wound up on there.”
