Miles Davis Quintet footage found 62 years later

A footage sequence of Miles Davis thought to be lost has just been retrieved from INA's archives. We can see the famous trumpet player with his quintet performing live on a French TV show on December 25, 1957. These outstanding images just got scanned in HD (see video below) from the original 16 mm film. They were filmed only a few days after the quintet recorded the soundtrack of the film Elevator to the Gallows by Louis Malle.
