Forty Years

In the 20th Century the cycle seems to be about 40 years. Things may not be clean-cut in this. There may be some spillover at the edges. But these things take about forty years. The "Golden Age of the American Musical Theatre"? It seems as useful as anything else to date it from "Showboat" to "West Side Story." About forty years. The prime cultural influence of jazz? For me and for a lot of others you could reasonably say it's fixed at the one end by Louis Armstrong's Hot Five and Hot Seven recordings, on the other by John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme." About forty years. Here's one to make you swallow: the guitar band. From Elvis to the death of Kurt Cobain was just about forty years. Something to think about, yes?
