Dizzy Gillespie & The United Nations Orchestra: Live At The Royal Festival Hall (Wienerworld)WIN A DIZZY GILLESPIE CD & DVD- LIVE AT THE ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL, LONDON (WIENERWORLD)
Jazz giant Dizzy Gillespieís final recorded performance, filmed live at Londonís Royal Festival Hall in 1989 with the United Nations Orchestra The United Nations Orchestra was created by Dizzy Gillespie to "showcase the varied influences that he considered valuable to the development of jazz". The 15 member ensemble on Live at Royal Festival Hall, London, was a true all-star orchestra, 10 of its members being bandleaders in their own right.

On this recording, the orchestra was on its last date of a European tour and it pulled out all the stops in a fiery big-band blowout. This is extroverted, aggressively confident big band music, meant to dazzle and delight. The driving rhythm section was given centre stage on Gillespie's "Tanga" whereby a lengthy section of solos by drummer Ignacio Berroa, master percussionist Airto Moreira and ace conga man Giovanni Hidalgo brought the house down once again. This CD/DVD digipack includes a booklet with detailed liner notes of the concert.

To enter send an email to dizzygillespiecompo@thebebopshop.com. Closing date for entries is 31st December 2018
