Buddha Jazz from Dr. Ron Holleman

Written by Mary Roberts

Fort Collins, Colorado Shambhalian Sue Shapiro-Holleman’s husband, Ron Holleman, has composed and conducted Shambhala Suite. The piece has just been released on Buddha Jazz, the debut CD by Ethos West Chamber Orchestra. Inspired by Sue and other buddhist friends, Holleman’s composition consists of five movements entitled: Dharma Bums, The Road to Enlightenment, Waltz for Sue, Sky Dance, and the rambunctious, knee-slapping Sakyong Samba.

With Sky Dance, the composer honors Her Eminence Mindrolling Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche. Waltz for Sue is dedicated to the composer’s favorite buddhist.

In a recent concert, the orchestra played Sakyong Samba as the last movement of the suite and the audience was toe-tapping, finger-snapping, head- bopping happy and ready to jump up and shimmy down the aisle as if Carnival had teleported from Brazil to northern Colorado for a few delirious moments.

The CD also includes original composition by orchestra member and pianist Bob Montgomery, Vivaldi’s Concert in C Minor and the third movement of Suite for Strings by Frank Bridge. The CD is available by going to www.ethoswest.org or www.cdbaby.com or calling Dr. Ron Holleman (in the United States) at 1-970-482-4099.
