About the Album

Wadada Leo Smith's "Monk and His Five Point Rink at the Five Spot Cafe" is the second track from his new album "Solo: Reflections And Meditations on Monk." The album features Smith's solo trumpet on four classic Thelonious Monk compositions and four new compositions by Smith inspired by Monk, the artist that Smith feels closest to in the historic continuum of creative music. This is Smith's first solo recording that includes another composer's music.
