The Best Jazz Club in the Midwest

While I appreciated the long-overdue article on Lowell Pickett and the Dakota ("Planet Pickett," February 2008), I did not like the implication that St. Paul jazz fans won’t cross the river. As someone who’s been attending Dakota shows since 1988, I don’t care if it is in St. Anthony, Sauk Centre, or Staggerford—it is the best jazz club in the Midwest.
