Laurance S. Rockefeller: Catalyst For Conservation
Robin W. Winks, Bruce Babbitt | ISBN: 1559635479 | PDF | 273 pages | 1997 | 7 MB

From early childhood, Laurance S. Rockefeller was deeply interested in nature and conservation. Influenced by his family's long history of philanthropy, Rockefeller has used his considerable fortune to support environmental goals, even making conservation and historical preservation his life's work. Now 87, he is the subject of Robin W. Winks's biography, Laurance S. Rockefeller: Catalyst for Conservation. Over the years, Rockefeller has donated undisclosed millions of dollars to support national parks and establish historic sites. Winks suggests that his greatest contribution, however, was the time he spent as chairman of the Outdoor Recreation Resources Review Commission in the 1950s. During that time, many of the programs in place today that protect against pollution and designate federally protected wilderness areas were first proposed. Winks's sympathetic portrayal of an old-school philanthropist provides insight into both the conservationist movement in America today and the life of an extraordinary man.

Jazz / World Fusion / Indie / Indian / Dark Ambient / Avant-Garde / Dub / Experimental Rock

Originally released in 1988, this album marked one of the truly successful world fusion creations, which Rhythm Magazine said symbolizes "the birth of a new era in music". It's a direct, transcendent exchange between six acclaimed musicians from diverse cultures, including L. Shankar, Zakir Hussain, Nicky Skopelitis, Daniel Ponce, Aiyb Dieng and producer/bassist Bill Laswell. This CD is a true American melting pot of deeply tangled roots, merging East and West to create a new music soundscape. At it's core, there's Indian music, and somewhere underneath lies flashes of the slow rustic lope of American country music.

Originally recorded in 1957, these sessions turned out to be the last the legendary Big Bill Broonzy would record; only a little over a year later, he succumbed to lung cancer. This collection consists not of fan or producer favorites, but Broonzy favorites, and includes a variety of blues, folk, and devotional music. Though he was instrumental to the development of the blues and the Chicago sound, much of the material on this three-disc set reaches back to the music that the blues came from, with a lot of drop-in help from Broonzy's friends, of which there were many. That makes these recordings not only recordings, but documentation, a testament to a bluesman who was at once musician and historian.
