5 Paradigms: Music [Popular]

Only the Lonely, Frank Sinatra, 1958
Track: One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)

Sinatra at his lovelorn best, which is saying a lot.

Kind of Blue, Miles Davis, 1959
Track: Flamenco Sketches

Have found late-to-the-feast delights in what’s known as modal jazz,
with Davis at the forefront.

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles, 1967
Track: A Day in the Life

Goes without saying that Pepper set the stage for so much creative to come in the rock genre.

Blood on the Tracks, Bob Dylan, 1975
Track: Tangled Up In Blue

Emotive and highly personal from the preeminent musical poet of a generation. “Tangled Up In Blue” has been described as “five-and-a-half-minute musical Proust.”

Hejira, Joni Mitchell, 1976
Track: Hejira

Should be a paradigm of her own. Thought of the touchstone album Blue, but Hejira is just so musically interesting and the lyrics so incandescent — “I dreamed of 747s over geometric farms” —  in the end, it really is her masterpiece.
