"Grant is one of the most innovative young musicians still carrying on the tradition of jazz, which encompasses bebop, swing and a little avant garde."
"Grant is one of the brightest, gifted young players I've heard and had on my bandstand. He can only do good-he's got a long, brilliant career ahead of him."
"Be prepared to hear from this young man. I think he's going to be one of the big boys - he IS already one of the big boys - and you'll hear a lot of beautiful playing from him. Grant is what we call in the trade a 'sleeper.' A fantastic player, but not too many people know about him - yet! Once they do hear him they say, "WHOA!" - and that's what I said when I did a recording with him. (And what I have to say to Grant is, "Keep on, keep on playing!")"
"One of my favorite tenor players in the world!"
