Disfarmer is the 21st album by Bill Frisell to be released on the Nonesuch label.[1] It features music written to accompany a retrospective of photographs taken by Mike Disfarmer.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars stating "the players are all excellent, but nobody here, not even Frisell, shines. Still, it is a pleasant recording to listen to if not hang on to. It floats and hovers about the room as a peaceful backdrop. Disfarmer is to be taken as a soundtrack rather than as a Frisell album proper, and listened to as a series of sketches rather than as a fully assembled statement from the artist".[2]
