TIME SQUARED was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album.
While TIME SQUARED maintains the Yellowjackets' reputation for laid-back contemporary jazz, the musicianship is consistently strong. Tenor saxophonist Bob Mintzer now and then recalls standard bop vocabularies with tasteful phrasing and timbre, while bassist Jimmy Haslip's tightly constructed bass lines surge alongside drummer Marcus Baylor's hi-hat-heavy timekeeping.
"Gabriela Rose" and "Claire" show the ensemble's penchant for romantic lyricism. Pianist Russell Ferrante is especially noteworthy on these tracks, as he is on the Thelonious Monk tribute "Monk's Habit," in which he delivers rich solos peppered with angular, idiosyncratic lines in the manner of the great bebop pioneer. The album closes with the impressionistic "My 1st Best Friend," featuring lovely excursions by Mintzer, proving The Yellowjackets capable of branching out into exploratory styles while still maintaining their fan base
