Bob Mover is one of the greatest and
underexposed musicians in the history of Jazz.
Bob is one of the true heavyweigts of all time in music.
Bobby and I go back a long way. Bob is a wonderfull musician- one of the great alto players who in recent years has become a real tenor player as well.
Taking Charlie Parker, Lee Konitz, and Sonny Rollins as exemplars early on, Mover is the sum of his parts with a mind and a heart of his own.
Leonard Feather and Ira Gitler The Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz
People are always amazed when they hear him play!
Chet Baker interview - The Wire
A first-class alto player.
Phil Woods interview - Saxophone Journal
His music rings with a profundity that speaks to both heart and mind...Mover´s voice is his own, worth listening to...carefully.

The day that Dexter Gordon died, Bob Mover was doing a live jazz recording when a blackout occurred. Bob was supposed to finish playing at 7:30 pm but he continued all night with no power or lights and dedicated the night to Dexter. We were packed with people, sweating from the heat, but no one left until 1:00 am. The music was brilliant!
