Charles Moffett

Charles Moffett was a free jazz drummer.

Moffatt began his musical career as a trumpeter before switching to drums. He is probably best known for his part in Ornette Coleman's trio with David Izenzon in the 1960s. He also appeared on other important albums of that period, such as Archie Shepp's Four for Trane. He also performed on vibraphone.

His son is double bassist Charnett Moffett.
