In July 1991, just a few months before his death, Miles Davis performed at France's Vienne Jazz Festival with the Miles Davis Group. He had just been awarded a knighthood in France's Legion of Honour with French culture minister Jack Long who described him as "the Picasso of jazz." Now, that historic performance is being released for the very first time.
