This week's Village Voice runs another installment of the Francis Davis program, and he devotes most column inches to two recent albums that pay homage to Captain Beefheart and Miles Davis's 70s funk-fusion explorations, finding more to like in the second-generation versions than the source material. This is akin to preferring the Joey Pants From Here to Eternity to the Sinatra original. But it's a bold stance nonetheless, and marks Davis as an honest chronicler of his own tastes, if also nutty.

Davis also likes Jason Moran's new one.
