Little Treasures ♫ jazz sextet composed and arranged by Rich Willey


Does your jazz sextet shine with an Afro-Cuban 6/8 beat? Would you like to feature them on a fairly modern-sounding original composition that lets everybody dig deep?

Little Treasures has stirred audiences all over the country and has been played by jazz greats such as Chris Potter and the late Kenny Drew Jr.


Little Treasures  for jazz sextet is an Afro-Cuban flavored minor 6/8 tune written and arranged by Rich Willey that can be heard on two of Rich’s CDs available elsewhere on this site. Always well-received by jazz audiences; nice blowing changes; rhythmically, harmonically and melodically interesting.

Arranged twice (51 written measures), play melody once before solos, and play the out-chorus (with tenor and trombone counter-line) after the solos. Written to be played at ♩. = 110, difficulty level intermediate to advanced.

Parts for trumpet, tenor sax, and rhythm section come in a PDF that you’ll be able to download immediately upon submission of your order.

Written solos for any of our charts may be special ordered at a reasonable cost. Email us through our contact page with any and all inquiries.

♫ Rich plays all three horn parts on this shortened clip using Pro Tools with a Band-In-A-Box rhythm section:

Somewhere there is  a live recording of this played with trumpet, tenor sax, trombone and rhythm section, and when it turns up we will replace the above recording with the live version.
