Your Friends at Nonesuch Records
The late Michael Disfarmer was an odd, curmudgeonly character in rural Arkansas, who, despite his anti-social character, chose to record the stark images of his fellow townspeople, during the 1940s and '50s, in black-and-white photo portraits. Frisell has set the images to music for this recording, to which the Observer gives four stars, calling it brilliantly" done; the BBC finds it quietly impressive... a patchwork quilt sewn with empathy, warmth and a sense of weary pathos."
The feather-light but resonantly deep Disfarmer continues Frisell's pursuit of Americana; a haunting look and the intrepid supposition of what one documenter of that time may have been thinking, as he created his starkly compelling images." - John Kelman, AllAboutJazz
