His CD’s include: Journey Through The Strings, The Musical Sea, Alfredo Muro and Friends Live at St. Gertrude Monastery, and Alma Brasileira Volumes I and II. His repertoire includes South American folk songs, Latin and mainstream jazz, Spanish and classical music, and in recent years he has specialized in Brazilian music, performing several times in Rio de Janiero and other Brazilian cities. In 2005, he was selected Musician of the Month by the Jazz Society of Oregon. The Centinela Newspaper has featured Muro as the “Hispanic of the Month.”
