The Stockholm Concert, 1966 is a 1966 (see 1966 in music) live album by the American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, accompanied in part by the Duke Ellington Orchestra. The recording remained unreleased until 1984.

It is notable as the last release of Ella's four recorded collaborations with Duke Ellington. Later in 1966 Ella and Duke went on to record their final album together; Ella and Duke at the Cote D'Azur.
