Violinist Tami Lee Hughes offers a survey of violin music by African-American composers that begins with a work written in 1820 by Francis Johnson and continues with music written in 1947, 1979, 2000 and ends with a work by Chad Hughes written in 2009. Ms. Hughes has appeared with symphony orchestras across the United States and is active as a recitalist and chamber musician as well. She is on the faculty of the University of Kansas. Collaborating with Ms. Hughes is fellow faculty member Ellen Bottorff, who has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe. This recording is the second of the series devoted to music of the African Diaspora, a collaboration between Albany Records and the Center for Black Music Research.

Review:
"...the program...unquestionably provides a sampling of styles that have evolved in the black musical community, each of which should capture at least some listeners' fancy. Recommended..." (Fanfare)
