“Alma Brasileira” the first in a planned series of four discs, presents a range of styles and moods, from the lyrical beauty of the early bossa nova, “Gente Humilde”, to hard- edged Afro-sambas. Muro’s mastery of and passion for the music rings in every note.
Muro illustrates on “Choro Tipico” with its undulating rhythm and catchy melody that the guitarist articulates with precision and expressive timing. The best Brazilian popular music also requires the ability to improvise, and Muro pounces on that aspectof Powell’s Afro-Brazilian Suite,” where improvised lines ride forceful polyrhythms over dark minor chords. This new CD is just a snapshot of the Brazilian music Muro plans to present. It’s refreshing and vital. Brings us more. By Lynn Darroch, The Oregonian Alfredo Muro is a spectacular technician. His style is one of being intriguinly enigmatic without any loss of clarity, with lots of well-spun inner voices, well-defined outer ones, and a wild palette of tonal and textural colors. Alfredo Muro was born in Lima, Peru and resides since 1989 in Portland, Oregon, from where he leads a very intense and active career as a solo performer, playing around the country and the world.
