A Fine Romance - Justin and Melonie Grinnell by Robert Bush
San Diego Troubadour, February 2020 (Vol. 19, No. 5)
[Photo by Michael Oletta]

"Being a jazz musician can be hard on your romantic relationships. Dating, let alone marrying a musician is no picnic[.] ... Relationships between two musicians seem doubly fraught—but when they work, I think we all applaud. ... So it is a joy to report that two of San Diego’s finest musicians, bassist Justin Grinnell and pianist Melonie Grinnell seem to have found that precious balance necessary to keep all of those plates spinning, and when I got the opportunity to interview them both for this Valentine’s Day edition of the San Diego Troubadour, I was interested, to say the least, in finding out how they manage it."
