Out June 21st on Motema Music, Charnett Moffett's Bright New Day represents a new chapter in his expanding legacy of jazz innovation. Internationally acclaimed for his pyrotechnic acoustic bass work Moffett changes the game now, appearing for the first time exclusively on fretless electric bass.
On this recording: rising-star violinist Scott Tixier, guitarist Jana Herzen, keyboard specialist Brian Jackson (known for his innovations with Gil Scott-Heron) and drummer Corey Garcia. Bright New Day follows up Moffett's acclaimed, 'Music from Our Soul' (4 Stars - Downbeat) - feat. Pharaoh Sanders, and his 2018 Nett Duo release 'Overtones’.
Inspired in part by Jaco Pastorius and Ornette Coleman, composer and bassist Charnett Moffett's Bright New Day represents a new chapter in his expanding legacy of jazz innovation.
