Mad About Records present the first ever worldwide reissue of Joel Fairstein's Umbra, originally released in 1978. Rare jazz funk fusion LP released on a private label in 1978. Hailing from Knoxville, Tennessee, Joel Fairstein has earned critical praise as jazz pianist, composer, producer, and studio musician. His first album, Umbra, an LP recorded at age 24 with eighteen sidemen, has since become a sought-after collector item. This reissue includes an insert with interview and exclusive photos. Transferred directly from master tapes.
