"Crepuscule with Nellie" is the fifth track on trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith's new album "Solo: Reflections and Meditations on Monk," out October 20, 2017 on TUM Records.

The recording features Smith's solo trumpet on four classic Thelonious Monk compositions in addition to four new compositions inspired by Monk, the artist that Smith feels closest to.

From the time he listened to the early masters of modern jazz as a teenager, Smith felt that "It was Monk, his ideas of a band and composition, that were the closest to what I dreamed of being as an artist. His history of composition and his knowledge of how to use sound were a prime motivator, really, for me wanting to be a composer. I would go back and forth between him and Duke Ellington on this, but Monk had the upper hand in the end."
