“From the first phrase sung, the audience can relax and know they are in the presence of a star in complete command of her art…Sanges has an incredibly flexible instrument…a jazz singer with a rare instinct for interpreting lyrics at the same time.” — Cabaret Scenes

“Josephine Sanges weaves through her audience casting a spell. Proximity, eye contact and controlled vocal power capture. Bass (Tom Hubbard) is a slowly pivoting hip. Muted trumpet (Steve Smyth) cries into the wind. The song is “Blues in the Night” (lyric-Johnny Mercer). Its train’s well known “whoo-ee!” sends shivers up one’s spine.”  — Theater Pizzaz

“When a vocalist comes along with a strikingly rich and radiant voice with real, as they say, “chops” PLUS can do the connecting with the listener and personalizing the material, that’s when you have…well, someone like Josephine Sanges.” — Nitelife Exchange
