I found that I had to play the CD over and over in the car.

The few tracks without Peyroux, whether instrumentals or with Galison singing (he has a very good voice of his own) give the work a remarkably coherent pace.

I really liked this record much more than "Careless Love," even though that's the one that seems to be getting a lot of attention.

Vocalist Madeleine Peyroux, who has become one of my favorites, collaborates with multi-instrumentalist musician William Galison in this outstanding CD recorded in 2003. The combination of Ms. Peyroux distinctive voice, and Mr. Galison masterful accompaniment on the harmonica and guitar, make this album a must have. As a team the duo conjures-up pure magic! The chemistry between them is absolutely palpable. There are three solo instrumentals on the disc, original compositions by Galison. His virtuoso work on the harmonica is superb, and the mournful "Jealous Guy" is one of my favorite cuts. The two are backed by some of the industry's top musicians, including drummer Shawn Pelton, Bob Dylan's bassist Tony Garnier, and Rod Stewart's bassist Conrad Korsch. Carly Simon makes a delightful cameo appearance in "Shoulda Known."

The opening track, "Back In Your Own Backyard" simply swings. Josephine Baker's sultry "J'ai Deux Amours is updated here, and Ms. Peyroux's rendition of Jerome Kerns' "The Way You Look Tonight" is performed with extraordinary depth, as is the title track. Galison and Peyroux sing a duet in "Heaven Help Us All" to the sound of Jean Baptiste Bocle's Hammond B3. Songs made famous by John Lennon and Stevie Wonder are also featured.

I first heard Madeleine Peyroux sing when I bought her highly acclaimed CD, "Careless Love." I was enchanted by her voice and her selection of songs and wanted more. Thus, "Got You on My Mind" joined my CD collection and certainly enriches it. I have heard many people couple Ms. Peyroux's name with Billy Holiday's. I don't want to be contrary, but I don't want to compare her smoky smooth sound to anyone else's either. To me, there is no other like "Lady Day," nor does there have to be.

"Got You On My Mind" (Waking Up Music) is the musical collaboration of William Galison & Madeleine Peyroux featuring a series of standards and original genre pieces. The subject of the album seems to focus on relationship ideas, positive and negative, collectively spinning through a multitude of styles to reach its final destination. This album was recorded prior to Peyroux's own sophomore effort "Careless Love," during a time that the two shared a romantic and artistic relationship. Legal issues with Peyroux's current label prevented the immediate release of this compilation, which thankfully offers multiple pieces of interest for the appreciative audience

The opening track is a delightful cover of "Back In Your Own Back Yard" that is sizzling good swing superior to a multitude of previous versions of this standard. As always, Madeleine Peyroux sounds like Billie Holiday reincarnated for a modern audience. Her voice is a wonder to behold-and if anything, Peyroux's vocals offer slightly more whimsy than those of the great Holiday. The pairing with Galison and his excellent multi-instrumental skills focusing here on the harmonica and guitar, gives this track, along with many others, that Django like sense so popular with the current dance crowds. "J'ai Deux Amours" allows Peyroux to offer cheer to a lover with delicate French chanteuse styling, and great tempo changes in the musical tapestry. "Flambee Montalbanese" is a Viennese Waltz brought to the listener by way of a covered gypsy wagon--an excellent fast-paced instrumental piece with an eastern European feel.

It's a rare thing when the chemistry on an album is palatable. But `Got You On My Mind' is a rare record. From the opening track you can tell these two musicians really connect. Peyroux's sensuous, lilting voice is present on the majority of the tracks, but accompanied by Mr. Galison's amazing harmonica it has a less of a contrived quality. The few tracks without Peyroux, whether instrumentals or with Galison singing (he has a very good voice of his own) give the work a remarkably coherent pace. It's not like, `oh, where did she go?' Rather, `yes, this is where the record should be taking me now.'

`Got You On My Mind' is beautifully balanced and produced. It's not confronting, but then it doesn't fall into the soft jazz category either. It's just lovely, quality music from two musicians who know their craft.

This music is playing in my office as I look out at the beautiful spring day outside, and it is linking up so perfectly with everything good that I had to write about it. People passing my door nod and smile about the sounds, one with a "thumbs up."

I saw this duo at the Bottom Line last year when I had actually gone there for the other act, Olu Dara, and they were so human and delightful to look at that the music was secondary. Listening now, layers of their spirited gentleness unfold. Highest recommendation!

I really liked this record much more than "Careless Love," even though that's the one that seems to be getting a lot of attention. I especially like the male-female dynamic on this album, and the eclectic sound offerings. My favorite songs are: "Got You On My Mind," "Jealous Guy" and "Shoulda Known." The harmonica playing by William Galison gave me such a peaceful, calming feeling and Madeleine Peyroux sounds wonderfully unique. It's a really nice record.
