Now considered one of the greatest bassists of the 21st century, Charnett Moffet is renowned for his virtuosity and brilliant soloing on electric and acoustic bass. His style: a self-assured sound bridging classic jazz, free jazz and bop, all the way to classical music, rock, pop, trance and world music, with the virtuoso pushing his instrument beyond its known limits. The son of Ornette Coleman’s drummer (his name is a contraction of his father’s name, Charles, and his mentor’s, Ornette), he was raised in the upper echelons of the jazz sphere and saw his career lift off in his late teens. He has collaborated with a compendium of the greatest names in jazz, including Art Blakey, Ornette Coleman, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Dianne Reeves, Stanley Jordan, Branford and Wynton Marsalis, Melody Gardot and McCoy Tyner. A member of the Manhattan Jazz Quintet, the Moffett Family Band and the McCoy Tyner Trio, the veteran soloist and composer has left his mark on over 200 recordings and released fifty albums under his own name, as bandleader or soloist, from Beauty Within, released in 1987 on Blue Note, to The Bridge, his debut solo effort in 2013. His latest project, NeTTwork, gathers the talents of longtime friends Moffett, Stanley Jordan and Charles ‘Tain’ Watts, each of them a master on his chosen instrument.
