A lot of bands are influenced by jazz musicians like Miles Davis, especially experimental rock bands like Radiohead, post-rock bands, post-hardcore bands, and several others. I don't think some of my favorite bands (Sonic Youth, Pavement, etc.) who are mostly influenced by punk music would exist (or be as good) without these legendary jazz musicians. Stephen Malkmus of Pavement even said John Coltrane and Andrew Hill were some of his influences. Jazz played a huge part in all of music.
