COME RAIN OR COME SHINE
"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."
(4/12/18) Bart Greenberg - 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."
(3/9/18) Alix Cohen - Theater Pizzaz
FINDING BEAUTY (CD Release)
"Josephine Sanges shines a new light on worthy songs, all but one written, co-written, or recorded and performed by Callaway. She does this by never distancing herself from the listener...Sanges holds her own with grace, class, and lush vocal stylings. Sanges puts enough of herself into her interpretations to suggest a rising artist who is on her way and will make her own mark."
(10/16/17) John Hoglund - Cabaret Scenes
TO ANN...WITH LOVE
"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. And when you match her warmth and sincerity with the extreme sensitivity and warm, humanistic, romantic sensibilities of Ann Hampton Callaway’s music and lyrics, you’d have to be a statue not to be emotionally moved."
