From a synthesizer-plus-brass jazz quartet to a free-improvising, aurally spacious acoustic trio, Idio-Savant performed music that shared similarities with Don Cherry's "Multikulti" world music explorations, the AACM's anything-goes approach to instrumentation and 20th century "sound" composers like John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen, whose work eschewed traditional forms. Their second album featured the band working in live tandem with TRANS, the Birmingham, Alabama duo, already well-known in improvising circles.

For thoughtful appreciations of both Idio-Savant and Trans-Idio from the Richmond-Times-Dispatch, the venerable jazz digest, Cadence Magazine, and the Milwaukee Journal, see the link below.
