Magical beauty, unexpected masterpiece; the exquisitely sensitive feminine vocals of Aoife O'Donovan melding perfectly with the sharp yet melodic trumpet of Dave Douglas. Be Still is a stark collection of deeply personal hymns and originals by Dave Douglas featuring a newly configured quintet and an important new collaborator, vocalist Aoife ODonovan. The repertoire mines the rich melodies of traditional hymns and folk tunes, which gain even greater depth through Douglas intricate arrangements.

Be Still features the two-time Grammy-nominated trumpeter/composer Dave Douglas and his Quintet with Americana vocalist Aoife O'Donovan on a set of American folk songs and hymns. It is a bold and brilliant blend of jazz quintet, devotional music on classical themes from Sibelius and Ralph Vaughn Williams, etc., and the folk tradition. It is also an intensely personal set for Douglas as it is drawn from a group of hymns his mother had requested for her memorial service. Douglas performed the hymns at the service and then, inspired by his mom, the music and a powerful imperative to go deeper, continued to develop the music and eventually to record it. Douglas and his fellow musicians burn an emotional arc beyond the artifice of lyricism, with direct outbreaks of pain and cries of joy. This is gorgeous, stunning music recorded exquisitely.

Be Still features Douglas' superb quintet of Jon Irabagon, Linda Oh, Matt Miller and Rudy Royston. Also featured is rising star vocalist Aoife O'Donovan, who has performed and recorded with Yo Yo Ma, Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion, Chris Thile and Crooked Still.
