    I don’t know whether the set designer should’ve been given a raise or taken out and shot...Still trying to figure that out

    Very cool footage though

    It looks like to me they took a movie of a practice session. I like it.

    Thanks for posting. Very enjoyable. I happened to be listening to the "Round Midnight" album last night which was also from 1956. Seeing those guys playing in their prime is always interesting and fun. :)

    It was shot for a variety show on the 7th of december, 1957 (i got the thread title wrong). The quintet had just recorded the soundtrack for elevator to the gallows. The footage was found while folks working at the archives were making an inventory.

    Miles is on Steve Allen right after his throat surgery in 1955.

    Great Miles jamming.

    But that tv set? No wonder he got into drugs and violence later...

    What I really dig about this is the sound. OK, by today's standards it's, mmm, lacking.
    But, with I'm guessing a couple of mics above the band .... Loving that sound, let alone the playing :cool:
