Listened to the 1923 "La creation du monde," and realized that we
really are no longer in the 20th century any more. That sound was not
characteristic of the 19th or 21st centuries. Very striking.

No, indeed...the work of a century (or 90 years) ago helps make that more clear than that of the turn of the current century, certainly. It won't surprise you how many of the important west coast jazz player/composers were students of Milhaud, I suspect, at otherwise rather obscure Mills College, before there was the likes of a Berklee School.
