“You know, sometimes we’re not prepared for adversity. When it happens sometimes we’re caught short. We don’t know exactly how to handle it, when it comes up. Sometimes we don’t know just what to do when adversity takes over. And I have advice for all of us. I got it from my pianist Joe Zawinul who wrote this tune. And it sounds like you’re suppose to say when you have that kind of problem. It’s called MERCY, MERCY, MERCY”.
(Cannonball Adderley Quintet, Mercy, mercy, mercy, in Live at “The club”. Musica per avversità inattese)
