Jewish Freilach Songs was not the first or the only Jewish-oriented record on Folkways, but it was certainly the rawest, earthiest, and most raucous. Vi ikh gey, vi ikh shtey, Her ikh nor in eyn geshrey Oy bin ikh a mazeldiker, mazeldiker yid. From today til I die, You will always hear me cry Oh, am I a mighty lucky, mighty lucky Jew (translation from Nazaroff's 1954 Folkways liner notes).

In his mad howl, guttural whoops, piercing twang and funky whistle one hears the alleys of Odessa, the cacophony of Coney Island, and the mountain air of the Catskills. The Happy Prince" is to be released in 2015, just over 60 years after the original album,100 years after Nazaroff's immigration to America. The venerable label and archival institution Smithsonian Folkways plans to release the recording. Hungarian filmmaker Csaba Bereczky is working on a film featuring the Brothers Nazaroff sailing to Odessa.
