I was sorry to hear that jazz at the "Toga" was ending ("Club Saratoga ends 30-year jazz tradition," Nov. 27).

With others, I enjoyed Saturday afternoon at the "Toga" for many years when living in Duluth. It was a pleasure to listen to Billy "D" Demeria (who I believe started Saturday jam sessions), Bob Ransom, Claire Befera, and others. The music was wonderful, and the place was always full of jazz fans.
