Bob Mover

Primary Instrument: Saxophone

Born: March 22, 1952    

Born on March 22, 1952 in Boston, Massachusetts, Bob Mover started playing the saxophone at age 13. Two years later, Phil Woods heard him in a high school All Star band in Miami, Florida and gave Bob a scholarship to study under him that summer in New Hope, Pennsylvania at Ramblerny Camp for the Performing Arts.
