Mercy for Joe Zawinul Wednesday Playlist
Joe Zawinul died yesterday [BBC]. And even if (for some unfortunate reason) you're not crazy for jazz, Weather Report, Bitches Brew, or the Zawinul Syndicate, chances are you've bobbed your head to one version or another of the classic I didn't know he wrote until yesterday: Mercy, Mercy, Mercy.
The late Mister Adderley's introduction to this live version of the song is entirely relevant to the occasion.
