Album Notes
This CD is the second of a planned series of five CD's. The disc explores an exiting variety of rhytms including Sambas, Samba-Cancao, Valsas (Waltz), classical and choros., by the greatest Brazilian composers such at Carlos Lyra, A.C. Jobim, Canhoto, Pixinguinha, Garoto and of course Baden Powell. It is his finest album produced to date (#5), exploring different moods from exciting sambas, jazzy inflections to romantic and sentimental melodies and classical style, ilustrating his dazzling and sensitive technique.
He is join on some pieces by great friends and musical collegues, Carlton Jackson on drums, Brian Healey on electric bass and Dave Fischer on congas and Latin percussion.

"Alfredo Muro proves there are no frontiers between classical and pop music. He glides, in a very elegant way, between the two types, from Villa-Lobos Prelude#3 to Tom Jobim (Eu Se que Vou te Amar), from Joao Pernambuco (Sons de Carrilhoes) to Luiz Bonfa (Manha de Carnaval). I am honored he included two of my songs on his Alma Brasileira Vol.2, and I listen to them with as much delight as I listen to the other songs. Congratulations, Alfredo, for your good taste, technique and sensibility."
