STL to become nationwide jazz hotspot

ST. LOUIS - Plans are underway to turn St. Louis into one of the country's hottest spots for jazz.

On Tuesday we got a look at a $10 million plan that will renovate and remodel Jazz at the Bistro at Grand Center. The club will close in a few weeks, and is set to reopen this October as a whole new center for jazz.

The expanded complex will include an education center and a new lounge and will house the headquarters of Jazz St. Louis.

Mayor Francis Slay says it will help make the city a global hub for the jazz world.

"St. Louis has enjoyed jazz for over a century and with this expansion is going to help improve upon and continue that legacy for many, many years into the future," said Slay.

The first artist set to perform when the center opens is Wynton Marsalis.
