Piano music can get pretty emotional and that's a good thing. Rick Gallagher's ''Until'' is not only moving, but is also a living example of the story-telling capabilities hidden under the black and white keys.
Soaked in longing, the composition is torn between acceptance and anticipation from the very start. Gracefully laid at the border between pop and jazz, the lead melody is so rich in phrasing an dynamics, it is almost as if you can make out the words behind it. Whatever it is that has been will be again, but until it will, all we have is this tune - the melody is saying.
If I had three wishes from a genie, one of them would be to hear a vocal line sing the melody complete with lyrics. Enjoy it at the link below:
