This is a fast-paced, brassy, pops-style march. In the introduction, a bold first theme is sounded by the horn. It's then assumed by trombone and trumpet, as melodic lines and counter-lines ensue. After a woodwind bridge, the first theme reappears in a strong fanfare, which recedes. In the middle section, a gentle second theme is beautifully sung by exhilarating image as a whole will make an ideal concert opener or lively interlude.

Commissioned and premiered in September 2003 by Japan Ground Self Defense Force Eastern Army Band, Naval Bleu is French for "navy-blue".
