- and like Baro he didn't feel the need to play jazz the way everyone else, especially Django, did. He just played. A very commendable aspiration but if you take it too far the music is no longer jazz or is merely jazz influenced. - By the way, has anyone got any recordings of Baro soloing against ...

It looks like it is a lack of interest Ted based on the dearth of replies. I think the problem may be that there are so many talented performers in this style, it is impossible to properly listen to them all without the music becoming a little boring.
