The trumpeter/bandleader gets noticed with every move, but the fact that the new Be Still features Crooked Still’s Aoife O’Donovan upping the plaintive quotient with her vocals is especially buzzworthy. It almost makes an act of uniting tunes by Vaughan Williams and Ola Belle Reed seem like business as usual. Both are valuable gambits however: Team Douglas’s interplay has never had more heart.
