Yoshi's release show celebrating bass virtuoso and composer Charnett Moffett's new electric band release, Bright New Day (Motema, 6.21.19). [Album line-up features Jana Herzen (guitar). Scott Tixier (violin), Brian Jackson (keys); Mark Whitfield Jr. (drums).] Performance line-up at Catalina's: Jana Herzen (guitar). Scott Tixier (violin), Cory Garcia (drums). For Bright New Day bassist/composer the virtuoso musician spearheads a genre-transcendent program that explores a wide range of sound, style, and emotion from the lyrical "Holy Spirit" and uplifting "O My God Elohim" to the urgent funk-rock of "Free the Slaves," (which features an especially cathartic electric fuzz bass solo by the leader). Included in this potent collection of eight originals are two Ornette Coleman/harmolodic-inspired jams, "Netting" and the exhilarating "Bright New Day," plus two thoughtful odes to the elements in "Precious Air" and "Waterfalls."
