​​Since jazz hit the scene in the 1920s, Melbourne has been Australia’s jazz Mecca. Through the 1960s and 1970s, Bennetts Lane was one of the most popular intimate laneway venues for modern jazz, playing the pure New Orleans style and repertoire six or seven nights a week. A popular local jazz club has even been named in its honour.
