Disfarmer features guest appearances from Greg Leisz (steel guitars, mandolin) Jenny Scheinman (violin) and Viktor Krauss (bass) In a career spanning more than 25 years and over 150 recordings, guitarist, composer, and bandleader Bill Frisell has established himself as a visionary presence in American music. He has collaborated with a wide range of artists, filmmakers and legendary musicians. But it is his work as a leader that has garnered increasing attention and accolades. Frisell's recordings over the last decades span a wide range of musical influences.

Incredible, truly incredible work.
I highly recommend this outstanding CD.
The music accompanied a slideshow of obscure, depression-era photographs taken by some cantankerous man who gave himself the name Disfarmer. It was a strange thing to see. Frisell's modern take on Americana was imposed over something much more antiquated. It did not create a clash, rather it created a strange undercurrent somewhere between Aaron Copland and melancholia.
That's why I wish the visual component were released as well. Having Disfarmer photographs on the inside of the liner notes is a slight help, but I think it wouldn't been nice to have a DVD packaged with the album to give people more context. As an album unto itself without context, it is good. Very good. It's minimal, but not embarrassingly so. Many tracks, particularly the last two, are the kind to make me stop whatever I'm doing and take notice.
But the full visual context would make this very good product even better. At the same time, I don't want to complain about 72 minutes of gently composed music.
