Charnett Moffett: For The Love Of Peace
Charnett Moffett inspires his audience and praises the Lord on this spiritual jazz message. Blending Far Eastern music with the kind of gospel message that we've all grown to know and to love, the bassist and his close-knit band "preach" to the world in a universal language.

Charisse Moffett, his sister, adds uplifting, wordless vocals, as Mondre, his brother, reminds us of what is at the core of jazz. The pianist for "The Shepherd," identified as J.S., gives the ensemble a powerful sense of the exotic Orient. With lyrics provided by producer Jessica Shih and a stirring recitation by Angela Moffett, "Who Took My Shopping Cart" reminds us that the plight of the homeless in cities everywhere requires our attention.

The session contains a balance of passion and reflection. Moffett's title track allows him to reach out and touch your soul. Soloing for more than ten minutes, he provides plenty of food for thought. The bassist proves his mettle with a highly virtuosic performance that will appeal to a broad audience.
