The Winter in Lisbon is a soundtrack album for the European film of the same name directed by José A. Zorrilla composed and performed by trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie in 1990 and released on the Milan label.[1] The album represents the final studio recordings by the trumpet legend.


The Allmusic review stated "as with most soundtracks, the music sounds incomplete without the picture".[2] The Guardian review stated "it's a full-on jazz album, with Gillespie fronting a fine band... A fine way to remember a few more of a jazz giant's final choruses".[3]
