The Happy Prince

The Brothers Nazaroff SFW40571

International klezmer supergroup the Brothers Nazaroff pays joyous tribute to legendary outsider Yiddish troubadour Nathan “Prince” Nazaroff, recorder of the mysterious 1954 Folkways LP Jewish Freilach Songs. Uniting as his spiritual heirs, the Brothers Nazaroff (Daniel Kahn, Psoy Korolenko, Michael Alpert, Jake Shulman-Ment, Bob Cohen, and Hampus Melin) celebrate the discordant, obscure, jubilant, ecstatic legacy of their Happy Prince. 46 minutes, 44-page booklet with artwork by Ben Katchor and an essay by Michael Wex.
