Dave Douglas CD release “Be Still”

I went to the 92Y Tribeca last night and checked out Dave Douglas and his new quintet!  What a great show featuring Aoife O’Donovan on vocals.  She is the vocalist for “Crooked Still” and this was her first jazz endeavor that I am aware of.  The program consisted of traditional tunes that Dave’s late mother suggested he play so it was a very nice blend of hymns and original tunes bringing a rootsy, folky vibe to Daves modern composition and playing style.  It was great for me because I have been a long time Dave Douglas fan!  I got to meet the band and hand out with a few of them for drinks after the show.

If you missed the show you can listen here:

Dave Douglas – trumpet
