“Little Sunflower” is a tune written by the great trumpeter Freddie Hubbard off of his 1967 album “Backlash”.
This is a modal tune based around the key of D minor, venturing into Eb major and D major during the bridge.
The tune is originally played with a latin/bossa feel but is fun to play with any straight-eighth groove on it.

    something precious on that topic. But this author seems
    to be a genuine professional because there’s a special style in his writings.
    I’m going to subscribe to his new publications, just to not skip anything.
