Photographer Tom Marcello writes:

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?

Here's the original, and a link to Tom Marcello's Flickr photostream. And feel free to contribute your jazz shots to the NPR Jazz Flickr group.
