The second day of the 2016 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival kicked off at the Fair Grounds Race Course Saturday (April 23) with sets from New Orleans locals Anders Osborne and rapper Mystikal, plus more tributes to the late Prince by Pearl Jam and R&B crooner Maxwell. Here are the highlights from day two of Jazz Fest 2016 (all times local).1:30 p.m. Anders Osborne is ripping it up on the Acura Stage, Jazz Fest’s de facto main stage, early in the day. The veteran singer-songwriter looks leaner and meaner than ever, shearing his signature beard, with his public struggle with addiction and recovery in the proverbial rearview mirror. Osborne and his band jam through an extended groove of Derek & the Dominoes’ “Layla,” then tear through a stirring “Five Bullets” off his 2013 record Peace.
4 p.m. Mystikal has been away from the charts for a minute. His last hits were years ago, due to legal troubles he said he was “ashamed” of. But, to hear him telling it, he’s on the rebound. The rapper announced at his Jazz Fest set at the Congo Square Stage -- a consistent festival gig for the New Orleans rapper -- that he has new music “out this summer, finally!” The rapper’s last proper studio album was 2001’s Tarantula, with a few singles featuring Lil Wayne in the last few years. So the rapper is sticking to old hits like “Shake Ya Ass”, “Here I Go” and “The Man Right Chea,” among others.
