eb, b, *1967 US, New York City
Musician of Jazz

Charnett Moffett (born 10 June 1967) is an American jazz musician who plays piccolo bass, double bass and bass guitar.Moffett's given name was created as a combination of that of his father (Charles Moffett, the jazz drummer) and that of Ornette Coleman (the jazz saxophonist). Moffett played in his father's band and toured the Far East in 1975 at the age of eight. By the mid-1980s he had begun to create a reputation playing with Wynton Marsalis and Branford Marsalis. This led to a stellar career and Moffett recorded his debut album NETMAN in 1987 for Blue Note records. He has performed and recorded with a long string of musicians, including Stanley Jordan, Harry Connick, Jr., Ornette Coleman, McCoy Tyner, Kenny Garrett, Mulgrew Miller, Courtney Pine, Arturo Sandoval, Lew Soloff, Sonny Shar
