Justin Grinnell and his new CD "Without You" were mentioned today on in Robert Bush's "Top Ten SD Jazz Releases of 2013."

[Justin] Grinnell is one of the finest bassists in San Diego. Heís got a great sound, time and ideas on the upright, and heís absolutely amazing on the electric, an instrument Iím not especially fond of. Fronting a quartet featuring saxophonist Robby Marshall, pianist Josh Nelson and drummer Dan Schnelle, this album [Without You] is filled with superb mainstream jazz. - Robert Bush, NBC 7 San Diego
