Way to many to pick
but
I'll say Miles
First one that came to my mind too.

I'm not really sure what the word "genius" really means though, at least in this context. For some reason I can accept that someone like Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein is a genius, but it's harder to say in the arts. E.g., was Zappa a genius? I don't know, but he was talented and worked hard as hell, so he made a lot of great music but genius. Who knows? It probably doesn't matter one way or the other.

Bach is incomprehensible in his genius.

If you only listen to it, you go "wow, that's beautiful". When you understand the structure, math, games, numerical references, your head explodes.
