REVIEW: Stereogum on Secular Psalms

The new Dave Douglas album Secular Psalms has been chosen as a “Best of April 2022” release by Stereogum!

Phil Freeman chose the album for his “The Month in Jazz” column of best new releases and said the following:

This isn’t religious music, exactly; it doesn’t take traditional hymnlike forms, but on a piece like “Agnus Dei,” Reid’s cello surges, with Leroux’s guitar and Warelis’s piano providing support as Deman sings softly, with Douglas harmonizing like a soft echo, barely audible beside her. His voice on the trumpet, by contrast, is fierce and powerful.
