YouTube: Mercy Mercy Mercy

Posted on: Sunday, Jul 6, 2008

So there I was trying to recall the name of the modern harp player who did a version of the standard “Mercy Mercy Mercy” on the gob iron and that reminded me of what a great tune it is.  I know the Buddy Rich version pretty well but I can’t find the harp version anywhere.  It’s not the Rob Paparozzi version BTW.  I thought that it might have been Nico Wayne Toussaint but can’t really confirm.  Anybody know?

Anyway here’s Dave Weckl and the Buddy Rich band.

Looks like my first thought was correct. Nico Wayne Toussaint.
