Here are a few Rich Willey Videos from youtube:
From a performance of Funkload at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall in Asheville, NC.
Rich Willey, trumpet
Alan Wyatt, tenor sax

The tune Funk Heap written and arranged by Rich Willey, Ⓟ & Ⓒ Boptism Music 2016.
Terry Vosbein conducts the Knoxville Jazz Orchestra in 2011 playing his arrangements of music from Sweeney Todd.
Terry designed this arrangement to feature Rich playing the trumpet solo. When the KJO performed this in Knoxville, TN, Carl “Doc” Severinsen was sitting in the audience oblivious to how nervous the entire trumpet section was in his presence.
This was near the end of a grueling live 2009 concert comprised of about two hours of challenging material arranged by Terry Vosbein.
The lengthy trumpet solo that you will hear Rich play was actually in the book of a fellow exhausted trumpet player who handed the part to Rich just before Terry counted it off, so you are hearing Rich sight-reading these chord changes while pushing the limits of his endurance.
