Charnett Moffett Trio, featuring Brian Jackson & Jaimeo Brown
Appearing on over 200 recordings, Charnett Moffett is a veritable bass legend and has one of the most distinguished careers in jazz. He first appeared on a recording at age seven with the Moffett Family Band. At age 16 he left Juilliard to join the Wynton Marsalis Quintet, before starting his non-stop career working with innumerable icons of music, including Art Blakey, Ornette Coleman, McCoy Tyner, Tony Williams, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Dianne Reeves, Arturo Sandoval, Anita Baker, Stanley Jordan, Harry Connick Jr., David Sanborn, Branford Marsalis, Bette Midler and Melody Gardot. Respected as one of the most virtuosic and expressive bassists in jazz, Moffett has outdone even himself this past year: Spirit of Sound, his 13th CD as a leader, was released in August of 2013, which followed his extraordinary and internationally acclaimed solo acoustic bass recording, The Bridge– a 20 track opus which was also released by Motéma in April of 2013!
