Porgy and Bess
Review: (Required): 

I'd like to recommend our newest Gershwin CD, "Porgy and Bess." Gershwin is
always a classic, and that he wrote an opera when he did with this much style makes
this worth a listen.

Norman McLaren. / Collector's ed.
Review: (Required): 

A wonderful 2 DVD set chronicling some of the most beloved film creations of this
early master. The films range from aesthetically sublime animations to live dance,
but really it all dances. There's good reason this genre has come to be known as
Visual Music.

Roots, Rock, Reggae
Review: (Required): 

Do you like reggae? If you do, you have to watch this great video that gives a
glimpse of the reggae scene in Kingston, Jamaica. The footage of Trenchtown is
revealing, especially contrasted with the luxurious parts of Kingston. Artists
interviewed and performing include Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley, Toots and the Maytals,
Jacob Miller & Inner Circle, The Absyinnians, Lee "Scratch" Perry, and Joe
Higgs.

John Currin
Review: (Required): 

John Currin is one of the most skilled -- and witty -- painters working today. 
He uses paint like an old master, yet always keeps the current context evident.  He
is straightforward without being too academic, and never loses his sense of humor.
This monograph is substantial (382 pages), retrospective, and recent – exactly the
kind of book we wish to have in our library about every contemporary artist.

Restaging the Sixties: Radical theaters and their legacies

Title of Item Being Reviewed: (Required): 
Restaging the Sixties: Radical theaters and their legacies
Review: (Required): 

This book explores eight theaters (The Living Theatre, The Open Theatre, At the
Foot of the Mountain, The San Francisco Mime Troupe, El Teatro Campesino, The Free
Southern Theater, The Performance Group, and Bread and Puppet Theater) that were
significant in that period. The first section on each theater is a historical
overview talking about the people who started the theater, what they were trying to
do, and a description of how it evolved over time, and in most cases how the theater
eventually went away. The second section discusses the contributions made by that
theater to the overall subject of political theater. Finally an essay goes over the
legacy of those contributions over the time since the sixties (and seventies). UT’s
own Dr. Charlotte Canning writes this essay about At the Foot of the
Mountain.

Title of Item Being Reviewed: (Required): 
Beyond exoticism : western music and the world.
Review: (Required): 

This book considers how western cultures’ understandings of racial, ethnic, and
cultural differences have been incorporated into music from early operas to
contemporary television advertisements, arguing that the commonly used term
“exoticism” glosses over such differences in many studies of western music.
