Charnett Moffett - one of the most virtuosic bassists of the 20th century.
In the 21st century, Charnett released only 5 albums; therefore, we must disregard him as "the most virtuosic bassists of the 21st century."
7 albums in the 20th century:
1987: Net Man (Blue Note)
1989: Beauty Within (Blue Note)
1991: Nettwork (Manhattan )
1993: Rhythm & Blood "Unity" (Teichiku)
1994: Planet Home (Evidence)
1996: Still Life (Evidence)
1998: Acoustic Trio (Teichiku)
Only 5 in the 21st century:
2004: For the Love of Peace (Piadrum)
2006: Internet (Piadrum)
2009: The Art of Improvisation (Motéma Music)
2010: Treasure (Motéma Music)
2013: Spirit of Sounds (Motema Music)
There's no confrontation, I'm just glad he got some love here. BTW my Charnett stack was right next to my Lonnie Plaxico stack, another player that I think gets a little overlooked in recent years.
