Live at the Royal Festival Hall (Dizzy Gillespie album). Live at the Royal Festival Hall is an album by Dizzy Gillespie and the United Nation Orchestra that won the Grammy Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album in 1992.

Recorded live at Royal Festival Hall, London on June 10, 1989.

Dizzy Gillespie, who was nearing 72 years old at the time of this concert, headed one of his finest big bands during his later years, The United Nation Orchestra. With such stellar sidemen as trumpeters Arturo Sandoval and Claudio Roditi, trombonists Slide Hampton and Steve Turre, altoist Paquito D'Rivera, James Moody on tenor and alto, pianist Danilo Perez and singer Flora Purim, Gillespie was relieved from having to carry this concert by himself and could concentrate on taking short solos and enjoying listening to the band play.

This recording ranks as one of Dizzy's last great recordings before his death on January 6, 1993. With an accent on the Afro-Cuban innovations that he brought to popular culture, The United Nations Orchestra is a colorful, hard-swinging, beautifully balanced ensemble. The band imparts to each tune a fresh spin without compromising its classic essence. Trumpeters Claudio Roditi and Arturo Sandoval are powerful echoes of Gillespie's own youth
