Miles Davis: Walkin’

What a great visual tableau starting about 6:44 in the video; Miles Davis, so cool and deliberate, standing at the back of the stage, watching over Herbie Hancock as he plays. It’s a great ‘moment.’ Just the way Davis holds his instrument, his posture – it all works perfectly. That is an example of a sequence I’d like to see find its way into the biopic. It’s quietly thrilling and telling.
