First review for Meeting at The Parting Place. 5 stars above 5 in All About Jazz, by Dave Wayne

It’s as if his main intent is to remain—or become—truly open to all possibilities… Meeting at the Parting Place is, above all, a work of art that invites its audience to lean in, enveloping the listener in a sound world that is simultaneously strange and familiar. Perhaps Thollem’s most thoroughly inviting and enjoyable recording thus far… Meeting at the Parting Place is a true tour de force of spontaneous music creation; a wonderful example of what happens when immense technique, boundless inspiration and highly focused artistic vision converge.
