“Dingo”

Miles Davis

Live at Puna Flat, Australia

One of the strangest and most marvelous clips in the history of jazz cinema.

Yes, that is Miles Davis performing straight ahead jazz in the middle of the Australian Outback.

No, someone didn’t drop acid in your coffee.

This is a scene from “Dingo”, an Australia-only release directed by Rolf De Heer which first came out in 1991.

I don’t think anyone ever got clearer shots of Miles’ embouchure or his fingers at work.

Miles and Michel Legrand handled the music for the film.

The DVD was released in 2005 if you want to see the whole story.
