Virtuoso bassist and composer Charnett Moffett will celebrate the release of his new CD Internet. This is Charnett Moffett's ninth CD and his second release on Piadrum, following 2004's acclaimed For The Love Of Peace. Consisting of 16 original compositions plus his very personal version of "The Star Spangled Banner," Moffett displays his virtuosity in a bass ensemble of acoustic, piccolo bass, fretless and bass guitar.
Moffett has supported some of the finest musicians in jazz for over 20 years.

In fact, Charņetts name is a contraction of Charles and Ornette.
As a child prodigy, Charņett first appeared on record at the age of seven in 1974 with the Moffett Family Band, and at 16, he joined Wynton Marsalis quintet, later appearing on the Grammy Award-winning "Black Codes from the Underground."
