Silva Records proudly presents one of Hong Kong’s most celebrated Jazz vocalists, Brigitte Mitchell, whom offers an array of delightful and sensual standards, exhibiting her versatility with a daring grace. Hits on this release include timeless Billie Holiday classics, God Bless The Child and the title track Don’t Explain, plus a toe-tapping, swing interpretation of Stevie Wonder’s Another Star. OTher tracks include re-imagined Jazz standards such as Horace Silver’s Doodlin’ and Nica’s Dream, as well as a haunting rendition of evergreen My Favourite Things.

Originally from the scenic shores of Cape Town, Mitchell has been living in Hong Kong for the past 10 years. She had an undeniable urge to explore an artistic path of unknown proportions, sparking this migration from South Africa to Asia. The move has offered a sense of creative liberation. “Taking that step to leave my comfort zone was one of the best decisions I’ve made,” she recounts fondly.

Growing up a witness to the diverse conditions in South Africa, she came to Asia aspiring to personify the change her father wanted to see for the people of Cape Town. By making a name for herself on new ground, she cultivated her father’s vision and she confidently asserts the importance of his advice, “He really insisted on this, try and reach your highest potential and become the best version of yourself.” And her record is certainly indicative of this mind set.

Mitchell has established herself as a headliner Jazz singer, known for her spontaneous and captivating live performances. Don’t Explain is made up of selections from her live show repertoire. “This is how I wanted to feel and sound. Ultimately, I grew into Jazz because I let it take hold of me.” The record is a time capsule that represents not only the magic of a live performance, but also the culmination of Mitchell’s decade-long experimentation and love affair with Jazz.

Don’t Explain showcases Mitchell’s multidimensional vocals in a variety of musical settings. She is backed by a core rhythmic section that she has worked with over the years made up of New York Jazz pianist Bob Mocarsky, Hong Kong veteran Rudy Balbuena on upright bass, and drummer Gary Da Silva, who is also Mitchell’s husband and the record’s Executive Producer. The album also features a number of guest artists, including Australian sax star Blaine Whittaker, Los Angeles pianist Bobby West (Ray Charles, Marvin Gaye), Australian trumpeter Toby Mak, Hong Kong producer and guitarist Tommy Ho, LA tenor saxophonist Albert Wing and Brazilian saxophonist Paulo Levi. Mitchell sweetly praises her colleagues, “Each musician has given a piece of themselves.”

Don’t Explain is just the beginning of Mitchell’s recording career. She says, “I come from such a wide range of musical interests. I hope to explore and continue to grow in new directions.”
