Miles Davis is seen in brief performance
clips and talking about several subjects


During the first part of a mid-1980s documentary made for French television, Miles Davis is featured in a relaxed interview and in some excerpts from performances.

Davis is seen in 1959 playing "So What" and with the Gil Evans Orchestra, on two clips from a 1972 version of "Jack Johnson" and on part of a video from around 1985.

Most intriguing is hearing Miles Davisí thoughts on the importance of practicing, saying that there is no short cut and that "I'm no accident."

This rarely seen footage should be of strong interest to Miles Davis fans.
