A Blog Supreme will be on vacation until after Labor Day. Until then, we are periodically leaving you with some photographs from The NPR Jazz Photography Pool, like the one below.

That was taken on July 6, 1976 in New York, N.Y. As a part of the Newport Jazz Festival New York, George Wein set up stages for free concerts called "The 52nd Street Jazz Fair" along 52nd Street, and Hannibal Marvin Peterson's Sunrise Orchestra was one of them. I had known of Hannibal's playing before with Gil Evans and Roy Haynes and I picked up his masterpiece Children of the Fire, but this performance was really exciting and inspiring. I especially remember a series of stop-time choruses that he played with the wonderful [drummer] Freddie Waits.
I've never been able to identify the saxophonist in the band. Maybe you know who it is?
