Composer's Notes: Cornflower Blue has a catchy melody that is showcased in slightly different moods. It starts off with a bluesy/coffeehouse jazz vibe, then transitions to a more upbeat tempo. The song builds to a climax, and finally trails off at the end with a series of improvisational arpeggios. As for the name of the piece: a cornflower is a European blue flower known as a “bachelor's button”. The most valuable blue sapphires are called cornflower blue, having a medium-dark violet-blue hue.
