"I really dig Marcus Roberts. My first album of his was "Alone with Three Giants." A great album! Just Marcus on piano playing Ellington, Monk and Jelly Roll Morton tunes. This album pulls several Ellington tunes from that album. However, one tune on this album that was not on his "Alone With Three Giants" album is "The Single Petal of a Rose." Gorgeous! You must buy this album just for this tune! It stirs the soul. It is right up there with the Strayhorn tunes; Lotus Blossom, Day Dream and Blood Count (which can all be found on another great album "And His Mother Called Him Bill," Ellington's tribute to Strayhorn)."
