Ray Charles' Legs Moving Everywhere On The French News (1988)

On 24 June 1988 the France 2 News had a 1m45s item on Ray, showing him playing an electric piano, with a long shot of the "legs of the jazzman moving everywhere", followed by an interview where Ray claimed that he has kept his position at the top so long because he has always been sincere. "I do not move for the show but because of the music". He then sings a blues.
In these years news items like this on French tv were mostly meant to promote one or more of his concerts in France, and often produced from archive materials.
