to write a review


Rusty McCarthy's music is diverse, poetic and very lyrical.
Bebop City is so right on about big cities. Many of the songs are pictures with no borders. Clean sound, great grooves and a sincerity that can not be denied. Rusty's songs are permeated with great sentiment and humble honesty. The music has humanity at its centre..not electronic loops...this is fresh music with real heart!

George Flowers

very good cd pleasing to the ear ....wicked guitar work ....
i enjoyed listening to this cd .. the sounds were clean and cfrisp .. and b-bop is off the chain ...i would definately recommend this CD to other listeners.

Jimmy Bloozer

Starts off being very interesting stuff. Then you quickly realize that this is very good. The CD is now a favourite of mine that encompasses various musical styles but none in particular, great 'licks' and creative lyrics. Overall, the music leaves you with a feeling of wanting more.

Cole Nelson

I heard Rusty was really good and this CD is better than I expected. The arrangements flow really well and I'm appreciative to know where my next CD is coming from...Sault Ste. Marie TALENT!!!
