Theaterfabrik, Munich May 1989 concert poster

Original first printing concert poster advertising Dizzy Gillespie with the United Nations All-Star Orchestra at the Theaterfabrik in Munich [Germany] on Tuesday, 30th May, 1989. The Orchestra was created by Dizzy to showcase the varied influences that he considered valuable to the development of jazz. The 15-member ensemble, comprised of famous Latin and black American musicians, was a true all-star orchestra, with ten of its members being bandleaders in their own right. Besides the leader, the orchestra featured Claudio Roditi (trumpet, percussion), Arturo Sandoval (trumpet, flugelhorn, piccolo trumpet), Slide Hampton (trombone, arranger), Steve Turre (trombone, bass trombone, shells), Paquito d’Rivera (alto saxophone, clarinet, percussion), James Moody (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, flute, percussion), Mario Rivera (tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, percussion), John Lee (bass guitar), Ed Cherry (guitar), Danilo P´rez (piano), Flora Purim (vocals), Ignacio Berroa (drums, percussion), Airto Moreira (percussion, drums), and Giovanni Hidalgo (percussion, congos). The album Live at the Royal Festival Hall was recorded on this tour and released on the German jazz label Enja Records in 1990.

The poster measures 59.2 x 83.7 cm and is printed in yellow and black inks on thin, coated paper stock. Just a touch of light handling wear, else in near excellent unfolded condition.
