Its just a matter of time before former President George W. Bush and his dunderheaded capers are immortalized in song. For now, well enjoy Nixon in China, which sonically chronicles Americas favorite screwball of the 1970s. The Phoenix Symphony presents John Adams unbeatable work recalling Nixons 1972 dealings with China's Chairman Mao Zedong as well as the awkward interactions between Tricky Dicks wife, Pat, and some swine at a rural Chinese pig farm.
