- "You guys are good, really good!" Sir Paul McCartney
- "I'm not much of a one for singers, me. They mostly bring on the old white-knuckle ride: worries about intonation, control, timbre, diction, not to mention the embarrassment of witnessing an ego so dangerously exposed. No such difficulties with Sara Oschlag, whose delightful performances have lit up numerous gigs at the Verdictand whose turn with Jonny Hepbir Quartet recently stole the club's bandstand show at Love Supreme Festival. Never is there any doubt about Sara's accuracy or timing, never any hesitation or hitch in her natural swing feel; she exactly knows her range and effortlessly works within it. Result: white knuckles relax into tapping feet and bobbing head, while egophobia gives way to charmed fascination, for besides being a fine, hip jazzer, she's sassy, witty and cute. I love a good singer, don't you?" Andy Lavender, Proprietor, The Verdict Jazz Club
- "Hi Sara, We had the most amazing day and both the bands were brilliant! Even the staff at Caravan said how much they enjoyed the music. Thank you for your help in organising it. Many thanks, Anna"
- "The Brighton jazz scene has had a boost with the arrival of the exciting young singer Sara Oschlag. Since the Danish-born singer relocated to Brighton she has lit up the local scene and been warmly welcomed by its musicians. She displays a maturity beyond her years in her song selection as well as her interpretation and whether swinging hard or caressing a ballad, Sara takes the listener on a journey, breathing new life into the old standards. I urge fans to catch one of Sara's gigs and, in the meantime, check out her dazzling album: "My Little Boat" which whets the appetite for the future of this great young singer." Jim Mullen
- "Hi Sara, many thanks to you and your group. Stan and I are still humming 'I Get A Kick' 3 weeks later! Can you tell me how to buy your CDs? SO Quartet created a lovely atmosphere last Saturday - the perfect balance! Will definitely have you back next year! Thanks again, Michael"
