One last clip from the Tanglewood concert of 1970.

This time it's Sanctuary and In a Spanish Key.
We spend hours searching the web for great jazz videos so you don't have to.

Story
Tagline
Music is a lifelong pursuit. The studying and practicing never really end, as long as you remain interested. I continue to study music and technique, as well as learning from teaching students, reinforcing basic skills and concepts in music. I love the challenge of improving myself while continuing study and research of music and the great artists of the past and present, in order to help train the great artists of the future.
Introduction
A brief look at Mike Crutcher's career will show that he is a quintessential guitarist and teacher. Unmatched and in a league of his own, his twenty+ year career includes training at : Berklee College of Music and UMass. Lowell, as well as with performing with diverse artists such as Soul City, Dave Anthony Orchestra, The Mike Fritz Band, The Times, Soul Inspiration, Gary And The Gang, and his own project Trick Bag, performing anything from bebop jazz, swing, etc. He currently performs regularly with funk band Mojo Mambo.

"A great teacher is one who realizes that he himself is also a student and whose goal is not dictate the answers, but to stimulate his students creativity enough so that they go out and find the answers themselves." - Herbie Hancock
Bragging rights
Released a self-produced CD, entitled "Hip Shot", with my own band, Trick Bag: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/trickbag. We also shared the stage with the Neville Bros. in 2008 at the Lowell Summer Music Series, as well as headlining at the 2011 Salem Jazz & Soul Festival.
