Lee:

Strangely enough the saxophonist looks like David Murray. I think he would have been in NYC at that time, and he can play alto. (Can't really see the bass player)

I didn't think shot 1 or 3 really looked like David Murray but maybe 2 does.  I don't think I've ever seen him without a mustache (or that skinny)

 

I think the vibes player might be Khan Jamal.

Possibly Oliver Lake on sax and Bob reid on bass.
Do agree that vibe player could be Khan Jamal

It could be that the alto player is Carlos Ward but I wouldn't swear on a holy stack 'o' bibles that it is. Khan Jamal was certainly the vibes player who played a lot with Sunny at the time so it would make sense.

Dear Lee,

 

Maybe Patricia
Ali (Rashied's widow) has written records / flyers / concert programs from Ali's
Alley in 1976 (though I don't think he was married to her at that
time, the materials may be in archives with her). 
color=#000080 face="Palatino Linotype">Henry and I both think the alto
player looks like David Murray, though why he would have been playing
alto is a bit of a mystery face="Palatino Linotype">.  The alto player could also be Byard Lancaster
 or conceivably Makanda
Ken McIntyre,
and the
bassist could be Fred Hopkins, and the vibes player would be Khan Jamal, simply
because Sunny Murray was working with those musicians in New York that
year.  Off-list I'll send you some contacts to those still with us so you
can check with them directly.

I know someone who might have been there. I'll ask him to take a look.

I have 2 different live performaces of Sunny's groups from that era in my archive.

I'll go with Byard Lancaster, Khan Jamal and Bob Reid. But I'll agree that the alto player looks just like Carlos Ward.

David Murray and Khan Jamal identified

From my friend who was there for some of those shows at Ali's Alley (he did the cover photography for Sunny's Charred Earth lp):

 

"That's David Murray on Sax and Khan Jamal in the Sunny M. photos."

 

me "are you sure"

 

"Absolutely. No guess on bass. Could be Hopkins."

Many thanks to all who responded to my request for the names of the others in my Sunny Murray photos. I'm going with David Murray on alto & Khan Jamal on vibes. Thanks again everyone.
