“In a city where jazz is such an integral part our heritage, few organizations play as important a role as Jazz St. Louis does in sustaining and strengthening the civic and cultural fabric of our community,” said Danny Ludeman, president and chief executive officer of Wells Fargo Advisors.

Jazz St. Louis’s Jazz at the Bistro Season features eighteen international jazz stars on its Subscription Series and showcases a dozen regional artists on its Spotlight Series.  The intimate Grand Center venue regularly garners praise and accolades from the likes of trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, USAToday, CNN, and DownBeat Magazine which named Jazz at the Bistro one of “150 Great Jazz Venues” in the world in its February 2013 issue.

In addition to an extensive programming schedule, Jazz St. Louis maintains an annual education and outreach calendar which involves nearly every national and international artist appearing on the Bistro stage.  These artists spend time in area schools conducting master classes, clinics, and occasionally private instruction with area jazz students.  The Jazz St. Louis education program reaches more than 10,000 students annually.

The 2013-14 Wells Fargo Advisors Jazz at the Bistro Season opens Wednesday, September 25, 2013 with the world-famous Yellowjackets.  Additional season highlights include:  “A Night in Treme – The Musical Majesty of New Orleans” with saxophonist Donald Harrison; guitarists John & Bucky Pizzarelli; percussionist Poncho Sanchez and His Latin Jazz Band; vocalist Jane Monheit; and pianist Joe Sample.
