Perhaps the more appropriate term, instead of 'musical genius' is virtuoso.

Robert Fripp is a virtuoso

Bill Laswell is a virtuoso

Brian Eno is a virtuoso

Tomash Gee is a virtuoso

I don't know that I'd say Eno is particularly virtuosic. He's amazing and has created brilliant work, but I don't think I'd say he's a virtuoso by any means.

I'd like to tack on Daevid Allen. The man co-formed Soft Machine, and formed Gong. Plus, if the Angel's Egg Trilogy is any indication, he's a very competent composer.

I was referring to his ambient works.

ANother Green World
Music for Airports
Apollo
Ambient 4: On land
Discreet Music
and
No Pussyfooting

I think he is a virtuoso for creating these albums.

He also produced albums for David Bowie, U2, Roxy Music, Robert Fripp, Genesis, King Crimson, Jon Hassel, Harold Budd, and quite a few more. As far as I can tell, he started deep techno and set the pace for ambiance.

Yes, he is a virtuoso by many means.

Disagree. Virtuoso has nothing to do with inventiveness. The way he manipulates studio production is good, not groundbreaking. Brian Eno is a better musician than a lot of virtuosos I'd take him over Dream Theater any day, but really, no he's not a virtuoso.

Virtuoso: a person who excels in musical technique or execution.

Musical technique was never Eno's route. He was textural. His music was never about playing quickly in order to get his point across; it revolved around (at least in his ambient/ambient pop phase) bringing vivid mental images out of the simplest things.

if you gonna take the virtuosic route, I'd vote Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Eric Johnson

and no Eddie Van Halen, please - Eruption is just pretty much wanking
