Time Being, Jason's sophomore effort, is a blend of jazz, psychedelia, minimalistic electronica, world music and more. Features stalwart performances by Dave Newhouse (The Muffins, Nick Prol and the Proletarians, DIRATZ), Rich O'Meara (Silent Orchestra), Logan Rainard (Gort vs Goom) and Seth Schowalter (soloist).
"Mullinax employs some of the spiritual jamming concepts that Quintessence brought onto the blues rock/progressive scene so many decades back but Mullinax brings in an even wider variety of sound. The instrumental tracks don’t quite sound like anything I have heard before (which is saying something) due mostly to the arrangements and instrumental selection, such as the vibes that are frequently on display. Mullinax is a percussionist, yet his exciting rhythms do not overtake the melodic themes. The songs moved in different emotional directions, which keep them fresh. The band has a relaxed but invigorating approach, which also works well."

"Jason A. Mullinax's album 'Time Being' is so diverse that it's hard to label. This album uses influences from every genre
imaginable in a way that is easy to swallow while keeping all of its complexity. This album switches effortlessly between
darkwave and psychedelic folk, between progressive rock and world music while everything is held together with a strong foundation
of amazing jazz. I hope you'll enjoy this album as much as I have!"
