RELEASED FOR RECORD STORE DAY 2016-FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED! -
If you can imagine the gathering of a group of Australian session musicians channelling the sounds of Herbie Hancock's Headhunters and Marc Moulin's Placebo, recording an album out of hours at a TV studio and then releasing a privately pressed hard hitting jazz funk record, then what you have is Arena, one of Australia's most revered and scarce rare groove records. Arena was a pick-up group of session players led by Ted White, a veteran of the British big band jazz scene (an associate of Ted Heath and Basil Kirchin) who had immigrated to Australia in the 1960s to work in the burgeoning television industry.
