Established in 1991 Birdland is THE store for jazz in Australia. We stock just about every Australian jazz cd as well as most titles on ECM, ACT, Tzadik, Blue Note, Winter&Winter etc. We stock lots of blues, soul, world cds as well. We also have the largest selection of SACDs and SHM SACDs in the country - around 700 titles in stock at any time. And brand new Vinyl LPS - jazz, blues, soul, classic rock etc. Birdland have released a number of Australian jazz cds over the years - there's a list on our website. We've won 2 ARIA's (the Aussie Grammy) for best jazz album. And one, "Fire" by Mark Simmonds Freeboppers was voted best Australian jazz album ever. Not bad for a little shop.
We are about a 5 minute walk from Town Hall station. Go straight down George Street towards Circular Quay. The Dymocks Building is on the block between Market and King Streets. Look for the huge Dymocks sign - the entrance to the building is between the bookstore and the stationery store. Take any of the the 4 lifts to level 4 - turn left and left again. The store faces George Street - we are right next to the neon sign.
