Burnside Album Details
Moffett, Charnett, Internet
Char?ett Moffett is one of the top bassists in the world with significant associations with Wynton Marsalis, Art Blakey, Tony Williams, Pharoah Sanders, Sonny Sharrock, Ornette Coleman (with whom he played for nine years) and most recently McCoy Tyner. Internet, Moffett's ninth release as a leader, displays not only his brilliant virtuosity on the acoustic bass, piccolo bass, fretless electric bass and bass guitar but his continued growth as a composer. The bassist explains the idea behind the collection. "When you log onto the Internet, there are a countless number of different places where you can visit around the world. I like so many different kinds of music that I wanted the possibilities to be as endless on this release as is offered on the Internet. This is a jazz album but it is very open to other influences. That is the concept of this album, connecting people and music from all over the world together, like the Internet." Internet, one of Char?ett Moffett's strongest recordings to date, is an important step forward in the evolution of the imposing bassist-composer who has successfully carved out his own original musical identity.
