We had a Chinese national over for dinner, and he was curious to know what grain he was eating. It was rice. Brown rice.

Illegible?! That's a Moya from 1995. A friend of mine bought a couple of Moyas speculatively about 5 years ago.

I'm gonna say it's from 1993.

  3:13pm Listener Robert:

On second look, it's from 1993 -- I see brainiac caught that -- and it's by Moya Katz. I don't remember if the ones bought by my friend (who's died since) were by an artist with the first or last name of Moya.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm coelacanth∅:

(guessing about the year, but it's Morris Katz)
  3:16pm Listener Robert:

And my friend's name was Dan Fasolino.

Does the Jazz Quota work like Carbon Offsets, where you can exceed the Jazz Quota if somebody else promises to play less Jazz to make up for it?
Avatar 3:24pm AnAnonymousParty:

@Irwin: Isn't there a cap and trade for Jazz like there is for carbon?

That's what the legals are looking into.

Hey y’all. Remember, no jazz allowed!

also, BLT did not do enough announcing of personnel for each track to qualify his programming as “jazz”
  4:01pm Manana:

Bless Allison Portchnik, wherever she is.

This Mo Troper doesn't count towards our jazz quota.
  4:05pm BH:

the Jas quota, on the other hand
  4:05pm Listener Robert:

Sure, Irwin, but it counts toward your Mo quota.
Avatar 4:06pm Fredericks:

That Freddie Hubbard had a very high jazz content. Be careful, Irwin, it's like playing with fire.
