I wanted to flip around the topic Resurrect a Classical Composser and Pick a Modern Music Genre for Them

Pick any music writer or performer who was active in the last 50 years, then pick a musical genre from before that time that you think they might get into if they were sent back in a time machine.

As before: don't worry about giving any reasoning. Doesn't have to be from the link above.

Example: Amy Winehouse, comic opera
Yet the lies of Melkor, the mighty and the accursed, Morgoth Bauglir, the Power of Terror and of Hate, sowed in the hearts of Elves and Men are a seed that does not die and cannot be destroyed; and ever and anon it sprouts anew, and will bear dark fruit even unto the latest days. (Silmarillion 255)

Miles Davis - late Baroque, preferably starting out as a student of J.S. Bach's

Reason: Miles 'inverted' in Jazz (Kind of Blue, So What?) the move from modal composition to four-part-harmony that Bach popularized during Baroque, so that alone is fitting. And Boy, would Mr. Cool have had a blast being there during Europe's most creative period in composition technique and music theory.

Jaco PastoriusFirst Viennese School of Classic

Bipolar musical genius with double-jointed thumbs and notoriety for over-playing - where else would one put Mr. Wait-this-is-supposed-to-be-an-accompanying-instrument? than right next to Wolfgang Amadeus?
