Frisell, Bill – “Disfarmer” – [Nonesuch Records]

Mike Disfarmer was a loner, eccentric and artist who had a photography studio in rural Arkansas. He died in 1959, but his work has since been discovered and exhibited. Bill Frisell uses his experiences from traveling to Arkansas and meeting people who knew Disfarmer as well as the photographs as inspiration for this album.

Fine guitar from Frisell, bass from Viktor Krauss, mandolin and pedal-steel from Greg Leisz, and violin from Jenny Scheinman. Mostly folk and country and western, occasionally a little jazzy ??? all with a very modern sound.
