New Orleans Jazzfest 2017 picked up the baton for its second leg from a soggy Sunday with acts that invited the sunshine back into the Fair Grounds Race Course. Really: Thursday was pure audio dopamine, though that description applies to many of this year’s daily lineups. Corinne Bailey Rae, Darius Rucker and Widespread Panic offered, respectively, sterling soul, country and evergreen rock jams, complementing the bright flourish of the Social Aid & Pleasure Clubs parade. Photographer Amy Harris returned with another gallery of all the colorful antics occurring in the Big Easy. Check back for more photo coverage of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival this weekend.
