Beyond Klezmer: Redefining Jewish Music for the Twenty-First Century
(Jeffrey Janeczko, Doctoral Dissertation / Ethnomusicology / UCLA 2009)
"Krakowski's music then, while steeped in traditional Jewish material and a multitude of American genres, lives wholly in the present through his own personal history."


The Real Yiddishe Blues: Rainlore's World of Music
"A highly personal, striking modern idiom that successfully blends
blues, R & B, folk-rock, country-rock and more."


RootsWorld
"A unique modern-day Yiddish troubador, who is a unique Jewish stylist for the ages"

" . . . voice, that sometimes sounds like the growl of a wounded, wild animal."

"This is gorgeous music any way you slice it; moving, deep, sensual and full of warm humor to boot."
"The depths are so profound and rich here they defy categorization"
"It doesn't get any more alternative than Wolf Krakowski"

 

--ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"Krakowski is the finest practitioner of Yiddish music anywhere. A native Yiddish speaker, for him the world of East European Jewish culture is very much alive and contemporary - something he demonstrates brilliantly in the style of his music and the richness of the lyrics."

 

--PROF. JACK KUGELMASS, Director
  Centre for Jewish Studies
  University of Florida
 

"The only modern recordings of Yiddish songs sung as though they actually mean something."

 

--MIKE AYLWARD, Discographer
 

"Wolf Krakowski is the Johnny Cash of Yiddish music."

 

--HASIDIC MUSICIAN, Blog in Dm
 

"We think of a Neil Young who would visit the synagogue"

 

 --TZADIKOLOGY
   (Translated from the French)
 

"Possesses one of the most unique voices in Jewish music,
somewhere in-between Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen"

 

--DAN ROSENBERG, Producer:
  Rough Guide to Klezmer 
  Revolution
 

"A kind of Yiddish Willie Nelson"

 

--THE FORWARD

"A depth of passion and commitment one rarely sees from
ANY performer in any genre"
