Dave Douglas describes the title, Be Still, as “aspirational.”
The continually evolving trumpeter and composer settles down for a ballad-like set that presents a series of hymns and folk songs with an intensely personal connection. Be Still brings out the most lyrical side of Douglas, and introduces both a newly configured Quintet — Jon Irabagon, Matt Mitchell, Linda Oh, and Rudy Royston — and an important new collaborator, vocalist Aoife O’Donovan.
