Charnett Moffett is one of the greatest bassists of the early 21st century, a fact that is reinforced on every selection of this CD. Moffett completely dominates the music, which only has brief spots for pianist Stephen Scott. Every number except "The Star Spangled Banner" was penned by Moffett who does his best to give the date variety despite the constant emphasis on bass solos. Best among the selections are the jazz waltz "Coral" and the catchy "Jubilant," which has solid contributions by Aaron Spencer on soprano and singer Maria Sartori-Spencer. Other tunes include blues, one-chord vamps, fairly free improvs and a couple of very eccentric vocals by the leader. But overall, Internet is chiefly recommended to those who love the sound of the acoustic bass.
