“The ensemble is solid and fits as tightly as a glued puzzle. This is the embodiment of jazz: cool, relaxed, and blissful.” – Jango Radio
“Everywhere Polson brings effortless urbanity and lyricism to this music, which is as seductive as it is persuasive, an object lesson in style.” – Raul da Gama, Jazz da Gama
“Each tune on The Portal is a personal statement, a journey of beauty and emotion, and each tune is a worthy listen, as each has its own sui generis quality. The blending of geography and players offers a cohesiveness of execution, and each composition is given its due and proper treatment.” – Shannon Smith, Sound in Review
“Pianist Thor Polson takes listeners through an imaginative portal into utopian worlds on his latest offering The Portal, and his rapport with the musicians on this recording displays a refined choreography.” – Jazz2Love
“A fine new entry in the realm of jazz.” – Grady Harp, Top 100 and Hall of Fame writer for Amazon
