AllMusic Review by

David R. Brooks makes his feature-length debut with the indie sports comedy The Yankles. In this fish-out-of-water story, a former major-league baseball player struggles to find redemption from his troubled reputation until joining forces with the Yankles, an upstart yeshiva baseball team heavy on heart but short on skills. The soundtrack features traditional klezmer sounds performed here by the Los Angeles-based ensemble Golden State Klezmers ("Der Yid in Palestine"), plus a soulful take by New Jersey-based vocalist Joshua Nelson and his Kosher Gospel Singers ("Hinei Ma Tov"), alongside an original score composed by Eddie Hernandez that blends Jewish folk music with funk ("Klezmer Hop") for an appropriately old world meets new world experience.
