Early national and international performances with his noted family members under the direction of his father drummer Charles Moffett, and his work as a trumpeter with the legendary Duke Ellington Orchestra, highlights an extensive musical career.

Moffett has several recordings published on the Venus Record label. His compositional work and trumpet credits can also be heard on the Blue Note record label, RCA, Paidrum, MoJazz and Silkheart records. His most recent CD releases include an original jazz musical score entitled “Royal Decree”, preceded by his acclaimed Symphony composed for orchestra, chorus, and jazz soloist entitled The Wishbone Suite.

The Mondre Moffett Jazz Society is a swinging ensemble that performs jazz music as America’s classical music, and also contemporary works of a global dimension. From Dizzy’s “ A Night in Tunisia” to Basie’s “April in Paris”, listening to the MMJS is an experience that is reminiscence of listening to jazz masters such as Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk,  “The Count Basie Orchestra”, “The Duke Ellington Orchestra”, and other giants in the field of jazz music.
