For example, in English we often to the time period 1990-1999 as the nineties.

There was good music in the nineties.

How do you do that in Esperanto? Is there anything short like the nineties?

I think people usually say la 90aj jaroj which is pronouced la naŭdekaj jaroj. So your example would be:

Estis bona muziko en la 90aj jaroj.

Here is an example quote from the blog Egalecen:

Mal/konstruismo mem konsistas el pluraj skoloj, kiuj estis plej influaj en la 80aj kaj 90aj jaroj de la 20a jarcento

To talk about decades from this century you could say for example la 2010aj jaroj, (pronounced la du-mil-dekaj jaroj). Here is an example from a book by Renato Corsetti:

En la nuna tempo, la 2010-aj jaroj, la angla havas havas grandan influon al la sveda lingvo

  • Yes. Just google the following and you will see a lot of examples in recent articles: "aj jaroj" site:www.monato.net – Paŭl Peeraerts Feb 19 '18 at 7:42
