Amidst an atmosphere of pub rock and cover venues, a 120 capacity basement in downtown Sydney opened it’s doors on May 10 1972 and fast became a benchmark club for contemporary music – adored by artists and audiences a like.
Primarily a jazz venue, The Basement played host to Galapagos Duck, Vince Jones and Dizzy Gillespie amongst others and when it’s popularity reached critical mass, the club expanded into a 2 level space in 1977 and officially arrived as a destination venue – hosting the likes of jazz greats Art Pepper, Herbie Hancock and Freddie Hubbard.
Fast forward a decade to 1988 and the venue, now an Australian icon and host to local, national and international contemporary musicians too many and varied to mention, takes a major left turn when developments to the site see the building torn down.
