A successful afternoon was had entertaining Fathers and their families, a recurring gig now in its 3rd year for The Max Miechowski band. Having missed the last few shows with the band, it was a pleasant one to come back to, and it's funny but I feel like I played better for the break?? This happens ever so often where I actually feel like i'm breaking away from contrived phrases that are built into muscle memory, I felt improvisation was more exploratory but with a sense of the changes still apparent! Any how we were given a wonderful meal at the end, the chef catered for my dietary requirements, only for me to mis-hear him and eat the sauce covered ribs a la gluten!! Lessons learnt....... a break resets your phrasing memory once in a while, and listen more intently when a chef is speaking to you ha!
