Justin Grinnell Quartet - Without You (2013 Album)
Robby Marshall (tenor sax), Josh Nelson (piano), Justin Grinnell (bass), Dan Schnelle (drums)
Released December 1, 2013 @ Dizzy's, San Diego

"Top 10 SD Jazz Releases of 2013" - Robert Bush, NBC 7 San Diego - Published 1/4/2014
Grinnell is one of the finest bassists in San Diego. Hes got a great sound, time and ideas on the upright, and hes absolutely amazing on the electric, an instrument Im 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.
