Miles Davis Quintet: “Footprints” (1967)

This film clip is from a concert done on October 31, 1967 in Sweden. The band was in Europe, playing in a concert package dubbed "Newport Jazz Festival in Europe.”

Miles Davis (1926-1991) was on the forefront of almost every development in jazz following WW II until his death including bebop, cool jazz, modal jazz and jazz fusion. You can see him here playing “So What” with John Coltrane.
