SAXOPHONIST/VOCALIST BOB MOVER'S NEW TWO-DISC SET: Disc One Features Mover's Vocals on Deeply Soulful Standards While Disc Two is Primarily Original Instrumentals Bob Mover has attracted generations of listeners with his versatility, emotional depth and technical command on alto, tenor and soprano saxophones. Through his sideman stints with such legends as Chet Baker, Charles Mingus and Jaki Byard, and his work as a leader since the mid-'70s, Mover has attained the highest level of individuality and authority on his instruments - not just mastering the saxophone lineage but also claiming a place of honor within it.

Born in Boston, Mover relocated to Florida at age 12 and took up the horn the following year. At the age of 13, Mover came under the influence of Ira Sullivan, who he remains close friends with to this day. After leaving high school at the age of 17 to pursue his career, Mover bypassed a more traditional route of attending a music conservatory or arts-focused school. Instead, he studied with highly regarded jazz veterans such as Phil Woods, Al Cohn, and Richie Kamuca. While still a teenager, Mover had already sat in at the old Half Note in New York with the likes of Roy Eldridge, James Moody, and Zoot Sims, and others. In recent years Mover has also cultivated a sound and style as a vocalist, as heard on his 2008 release It Amazes Me... Following up that strong effort on his new two-disc release My Heart Tells Me, Mover divides his time between two different but closely related aesthetics.

Disc one showcases Mover singing a set of deeply soulful yet unaffected standards (the one instrumental is Cole Porter's „Get Out of Town"). Disc two is wholly instrumental (save for the Kenny Dorham ballad „Fair Weather"), with trumpet and occasional second tenor added, and the tunes are mainly Mover's own. This vocal/instrumental set follows in the spirit of Mover's one-time cohort, Chet Baker.

„I consider myself a musician who sings, as opposed to a singer," says Mover. „On my previous record I sang about six out of 11 tunes, but in a performance I'll sing only two or three tunes in a set. I find that singing opens my heart chakra - I'm even more connected to the music by actually conveying the lyrics."

From beginning to end on My Heart Tells Me, Mover invites us to breathe with him as well. In the words of Chuck Berg, writing in DownBeat magazine, „Mover's music rings with a profundity that speaks to both heart and mind."
