August Ocean Overture 
Michael Guy's debut CD released in digital distribution JUNE '08 is a compilation of his newest Piano Solo work layered with digital choirs, strings and bass recorded each JULY since 2005. This special music was only recorded in summer in Daytona Beach, FL in an ocean setting. It reflects his lasting love for the tropical oceans of the Atlantic SE coast. Except for a stint in New York City from 1979-1984 where he worked as a temp in publishing and music, he has spent most of his adult life in Florida living and fishing near the sea.
Returning from N.Y.C. in 1985 he was forced to go on kidney dialysis and he received a kidney transplant in 1990. During this time he did much composing and piano playing. During the 90's with the advent of digital technology he began to record using Roland sequencers and digital samples. The second half of his debut CD reflects these compositions and some he did in studios during that time. These 5 compositions use a JAZZ GROUP setting with drums, bass, guitar, electric keyboards and sampled strings. Many will soon be available as Scored charts in notation in his JzCDz.com Storefront along with some of his classical scores which he has composed for piano solo, orchestra and chamber music. PLEASE SEE THE PORTFOLIO PAGE> Here you will find the links to his other blogs, his storefront and his CD & Digital Distribution sites.

The Last Renaissance Man (2006)
The Last Renaissance Man is an imaginative adventure complete with a true Hurricane story and fascinating history set in England and the Caribbean. You’ll believe the 1695 narrative is true .
Meet a composer, whose idea of “R&R” in the tropics turns his passage to trial-by-water, blending musical and maritime history into a Shakespearian Tempest-tale that’ll rock your boat! The London portion of the novel is set in colorful Baroque theatre and tippling houses (pubs), where Henry Purcell who serves as the model for the main character was given credit for semi-operas (called Masques) like The Tempest.
After a hard winter, his Patroness dead, his income slashed, his wife suspicious, Henry’s agent wants another tour of cheap venues. Plague has Henry fearing contagion. Hallucinogenic from the wrong cure, he flees to sunny Madeira by sea but then his Sea Venture unfurls unpredictably. A storm-cursed ship and a superstitious crew believe he’s a Jonah; then a course-change turns his vision of a magical Admiral into truth, foreshadowing Shakespeare's play, The Tempest. Eccentric Lord Willoughby, Ex-Admiral, commands the elements; meet his mulatto daughter, Miranda, as spirited as her enchanted mare, Juno. Do events resemble his new opera? Stay aboard for Book 2 when the nautical adventure grows menacingly real!
