Legendary jazz musician Miles Davis is set to be honored in the least visible way possible: on the face of a U.S. Postal Service stamp.

The Prince of Darkness will be getting his own stamp, along with French singer Edith Piaf, The Telegraph of Alton, Ill. reports.

Davis was an early pioneer of bebop and one of the most influential jazz musicians of all time.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. He died at the age of 65 in Santa Monica, Calif.

Any person nominated for a commemorative has to go through a lengthy process. The candidate is reviewed by the 12 members of the Stamp Advisory Committee, and then sent to the Postmaster General for a final decision.
