Mover, who has recorded 10 albums as a leader and countless more as a featured performer, first came to the public's attention when Charles Mingus hired him at the age of 21 to play with the Mingus band throughout a 5-month engagement at the famous Five Spot in New York City. Mover went on to secure his place in the jazz pantheon when he began his long association with the great trumpeter/vocalist Chet Baker and his band, with whom Mover made his European debut at Le Grand Parade du Jazz in Nice, France.
