Miles Davis In The Rock Hall Of Fame… Really?

“This seems provocative for a second, and then a little meaningless. It is not some sort of timely argument for underappreciated work; adventurous musicians like those in the Black Rock Coalition have been claiming Davis’s electric period as an inspiration for decades. There are some jazz adherents who never liked Davis’s long electric phase and will be mildly outraged. But after all the jagged turns of his career, and its thorough box-set gilding, most of us have long since let Davis’s body of work just assume its own meaning.”
