Today rising star violinist Randall Goosby announces his debut album Roots, (Decca Classics) is set for release on June 25th. The album is an exploration of the music written by Black composers and inspired by Black American culture. The collection is a homage to the pioneering musicians that paved the way for Goosby and his generation of young artists.  The first single "Adoration" was written by the African-American composer Florence Price and is recorded with violin for the first time ever on Roots. The world premiere recording can be heard here.
