O’s Notes: New York based saxophonist Tim Armacost is a polished jazz musician who surrounds himself with top talent on Time Being. The lineup is drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts, bassist Robert Hurst, and pianist David Kikoski with the leader, producer Armacost. Their groove falls somewhere in between hard bop and modern jazz for a pleasurable mix. “Lonely Woman”, “Sculpture #3” and “Sculpture #1” are notable in a well balanced set that features Tim and his band experimenting across an adventurous landscape.
