Jati Lindsay documents the shows and the hang

The 2017 DC Jazz Festival ran June 9 – 18 at various venues in our nation’s capital, and included DC JazzFest at the Yards, an evening and two full days of music along the Anacostia River waterfront. JT contributing photographer Jati Lindsay was everywhere during the fest, documenting the gigs as well as the artists hanging with each other and with the fans.
