Three decades on from his recording debut as a leader, and more than four decades since his first professional performance at age 8 in The Moffett Family Band, bassist extraordinaire Charnett Moffett can look back on a storied career. It began at a remarkably young age in the family band led by his father, drummer Charles Moffett; was forged in his formative years in the thriving Bay Area fusion scene; developed along parallel tracks in the classically-oriented classrooms of Juilliard and the hothouse Greenwich Village club scene in early-80s New York City; and has continued to evolve through experiences with iconic artists like McCoy Tyner, Art Blakey, Sonny Sharrock and Ornette Coleman, (Charnett is on his Pulitzer prize winning Sound Museum), along with like-minded peers including the Marsalis family, Kenny Garrett and longtime compatriot Jordan.

The only thing I can do now is put my energy into something that’s positive, with a lot of life and love in it,” Moffett says. “That is definitely the art form of improvisational creative jazz music. It definitely lets you know that life is always expanding and things are always evolving.
