On June 18, Wynton Marsalis and Ghana musician Yacub Addy performed at the Allen Theatre, where they revived New Orleans' Congo Square, a legendary place that served as a breeding ground for jazz and most other African-American music forms in the 18th and 19th centuries. Aiding Marsalis and Addy were the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and Odadaa!, a Ghana drum troupe. Action Rock Photographer Walter Novak was there to capture the action for his latest slideshow. -- Justin Farrar
