AllMusic Review by

Catchy title, though the notes more accurately call Kozlowsky the last klezmer in Poland. A cousin of Naftuli Brandwein, he keeps not only keeps the European klezmer tradition going but teaches it: there's a cut with a nifty vocal by a non-Jewish Polish student, along with his own piano, nice violin and small group music, and a 12-minute lecture in Yiddish (translation in the notes). Included are some partisan songs from World War II.
