This year's Jazz Fest night time schedule was less jammy than in years past. There were plenty of aggregations of guys in different bands who got together on a New Orleans stage, but there were also shows by people who play together nightly, many of which can complete a song in under five minutes. 

Photographer Patrick Ainsworth ventured out to see Buddy Guy at the House of Blues last Friday night, and The Drive-By Truckers on the Saturday night on the second of their two nights at the Civic Theatre. Here are the highlights.
