Big Sur Reminiscence (2012) - Michael Martinez Commemorative CD
You heard him as you ran down Hurricane Point. You've taken a selfie with him after you've crossed the Bixby Bridge. Now you can close your eyes and relive that bucket list moment.
For the past 11 years, Michael Martinez has been the grand piano man at the Big Sur International Marathon serenading runners as they cross the iconic Bixby Bridge. Big Sur Reminiscence is Michael's first release, containing seven popular songs and movie themes and three originals.
Michael dedicates this CD to the runners and to his mentor Jonathon Lee, who played at mile 13.1 for seventeen years. While this CD serves its purpose pumping up runners with songs like Classical Gas and Chariots of Fire, there are more peaceful selections that will delight listeners who are looking for a more relaxed and introspective experience.
