Hello MeFi. I'm curious as to the correlation between software development Design Patterns for and Jazz Standards.
Usual loot from Google: Some dude who thought of it first (and used it as a nice allegoric explanation in Programmers Stackexchange
and a somewhat geeky ironic coding-related mention ("Jazz supports interaction through event listeners
These are all nice examples of the basic similarity between the two, I'm looking for more, though.
Are you aware of any materials that somehow approach this idea?

What are the recent jazz standards? Prototypically, jazz standards are from the '40s—let's guess the median is somewhere around 1945 and the standard deviation is 15 years—but the canon is certainly not closed, as shown by, say, 'Birdland' (1977). What else has become really widely known and played, in that time frame or since? Please cite a few performers to justify your claim. Bonus points if they're in different styles or decades.
