San Diego, California

San Diego, California

featuring Eric Marienthal's "Sunstone"

San Diego, California has a close relationship to the Pacific Ocean it sits on. A popular destination for boating, surfing, and fishing, San Diego also houses the U.S. Navy’s largest base on the West Coast. This eScapes scene begins with a view of a modern fish bones sculpture adorning Embarcadero Marina Park. Seaport Village, an open-air commercial mall on the seaside, can be seen in the background.

This sample video ends with a reverse view of the San Diego skyline from Coronado Island, just across San Diego Bay from downtown. Most of the city’s skyscrapers are close to the same height– due to the proximity of San Diego International Airport, they’re limited to 500 feet– but standing out close to the waterfront are the twin towers of the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel, the city’s second tallest structure at 497 feet.

Eric Marienthal is a contemporary jazz saxophonist who has been successful as a solo artist and as a member of various groups including the Rippingtons, the Gordon Goodwin Big Phat Band, and the revival of the Jeff Lorber Fusion.
