Here’s a great video of electric bassist Charnett Moffett performing “Moses.” This well-produced video series really showcases this excellent bassist’s technique.
Taken from his recent Motema Music release “The Art of Improvisation”, “Moses” is a Middle Eastern flavored trio number with pianist Scott Brown and drummer Eric McPherson that features Charnett’s considerable slapping-popping technique on fretless electric bass guitar.
