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.

While still in high school, Bob sat in with such luminaries as Roy Eldridge, Wynton Kelly, Zoot Sims, Kenny Dorham, James Moody, Jimmy Rushing, Anita O'Day, Richie Kamuca, Charles Davis, Chubby Jackson and others.
