From 1972-1998, while serving as the composer and arranger for the U.S. Air Force's premiere 18-piece jazz band, the Airmen of Note, Mike Crotty became widely recognized as one of the top composer and arrangers in the Jazz field.

The Smithsonian Collection, "Big Band Renaissance: The Evolution of the Jazz Orchestra," includes Crotty's piece, "Noel." Dizzy Gillespie commissioned Mike to arrange the music for a special performance with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, which was later recorded as "The Symphony Sessions."
