– NEW DIMENSIONS, England

“It is always a thrill to encounter the sensitive, evolutionary music of a well-rounded, multi-dimensional composer such a saxophonist/synthesist Rusty Crutcher….LOVE DANCE is.. lovingly intimate music, uncluttered by egoistic virtuosity, warm, gentle, heartfelt….MACHU PICCHU IMPRESSIONS awakens the heart to a deep sense of ancient spiritual serenity. Rich in harmonic fluidity, intimately lyrical melodies and soothing natural ambience… excellent music, sensitive, deep, uplifting, accessible to all….CHACO CANYON opens the heart to the wondrous healing powers of the Earth and to awesome grandeur of the eternal human spirit, shared by all peoples of every culture throughout every era – many voices, one heart. Spaciously serene, psycho-spiritually evocative, aesthetically potent – in a word – superb.”

“Rusty Crutcher is a unique artist with a gift for recording the essence of sacred sites.”
– HEARTBEATS

“This music has a feeling of integrity and authenticity…”
– Mark Freeman, Film/Video Studies Dept., PITZER COLLEGE

“Beyond a simple tapestry of sounds, Crutcher has desired to draw his inspiration from these exotic, marvelous places so that everyone may feel well and imagine himself at the heart of the sacred place. Great efforts have been made in recording these ambiences; one is surprised to find out that the mix of nature and music is homogeneous. Crutcher, a saxophonist, knows music. His compositions would displease no one.”
– AU COEUR DE LA MUSIQUE NOUVEL AGE by Gilles Bedard

“I was taken by the beautiful sounds Crutcher created by capturing man and nature in harmony together.”
– Ben Rutgey, music critic
