"The American Yiddish musical theater, a vibrant expression of the immigrant experience, became famous during its heyday in the 1920s-1940s. Combining the musical flavors of Viennese operetta, Tin Pan Alley, and eastern European nostalgia, these songs and duets are quintessential American popular music-- with a Yiddish voice. Volume 1 spotlights the hit songs of Abe Ellstein, one of the genre's premier songwriters. New historically accurate orchestrations re-create the unforgettable glory days of Yiddish radio and film, the uproarsiou vaudeville houases, and the thrill of a night at the theater on onld New York's fabled "Second Avenue."


   




Review By Howard Kissel,New York Daily News,March 2005

"An unusual document is "Abraham Ellstein's Yiddish Stage Songs," which is part of the Milken Archive of American Jewish Music on Naxos. These are lively, affecting, beautifully performed pieces."



Review By Lawrence Toppman,Charlotte Observer,March 2005

"...bawdy enough to rank with the 'jelly roll' songs cut by black blues singers 70 years ago."



Review By Paul Mitchinson,Nextbook.org,March 2005

"The vocals are exciting and virtuosic."
