Born: May 12, 1971    Primary Instrument: Piano

New Zealand born jazz pianist, currently resident in London, UK.

There is a fleetness of touch in the musicians’ performances that makes the music seem to take flight. The result is a mysteriously beautiful composition that I never wanted to end. To create an articulate structure with contextual logic and a followable narrative is an art-form; to do so in a group context is even more challenging. That Mitchell and Haynes make it sound so easy, so suffused with consummate musicianship is a credit to their promising talent and impeccable taste. CHRISTIAN CAREY, SPLENDID EZINE

The set concludes on a piece with gospel inflections, a perfect summary of the duo's chemistry and deep understanding. There is no denying its artistry, creativity and understated charm. FRANCOIS COUTURE, ALLMUSIC.COM

The consistently fabulous Leo label continues to unearth creative music form spirits known and often unknown... Intricate ideas, majestic and melodic, melancholy and elegant. DOWNTOWN MUSIC GALLERY, NY REVIEW MAY 2004

Biathanatos is an introspective musical conversation between two of the most unique voices that the New Zealand jazz fraternity has produced. These two special musicians build and destroy musical structures with subtle intensity, seamlessly moulding improvised music forms, electronica, contemporary composition, Baltic and Balkan folk music and jazz into an engaging sound that is pure communication of human feelings and emotions. LEO RECORDS, PRESS RELEASE MAY 2004

Sophie Garner makes a striking CD debut. She has the knack of making a song swing and her interpretations are original. Her band is excellent, too, especially pianist Duncan Haynes and saxophonist Brandon Allen. DAVE GELLY, THE OBSERVER JUNE 2005
