boopster13 It is a tender tribute to the spiritual. It reminds me of musical roots older than my first memories. It comforts me and reminds me that I am never alone. Favorite track: Be Still My Soul.

John Pope I first checked out this record based on a long-held admiration for Dave and his music. I had no idea Aofie O'Donovan was on it until I heard her voice (which I recognised instantly from her work with Crooked Still), and I couldn't believe it. It's like a dream. Beautiful.

Steve Lawson Stunning arrangements of hymn-tunes. Everything Dave Douglas does is wonderful. Favorite track: Be Still My Soul.

Andrew Dubber This is a lovely and incredibly touching collection of hymns, folk songs and ballads performed for Dave's mother. Heartfelt country music from a jazz player. Favorite track: Be Still My Soul.

about

Dave Douglas who describes the album 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 provides an introduction to a newly-configured quintet featuring Jon Irabagon, Matt Mitchell, Linda May Han Oh, and Rudy Royston, as well as an important new collaborator, vocalist Aoife O’Donovan.
