“Showdown” by Arpeggio – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Arpeggio is Jessica Williams, Fred Sawyers, Jerry Scott and Jason Reed. A disco ensemble from Simon Soussan (Shalamar, French Kiss, The Simon Orchestra and Charisma). The sound of pure disco reaches it most fulfilling with all of the bells and whistles (literally) which made dance floors feel at home. “Showdown” is a track from the second Arpeggio album titled “Breakout” from 1980. A nice high energy disco number with the soulful ensemble bringing the disco beat a sweet note. One of my favorites of the period and so infectious it still moves quite well.
I have taken scenes from the 1968 Italian/American Western epic, “Once Upon A Time In The West” to create a “showdown” in a new way. The stance here is for Claudia Cardinale whose beauty is worth the duel. It plays out a fantasy for the disco number which I love to create.
This Disco Video Mix is dedicated to the lovely Jessica Williams of Arpeggio in thanks for her friendship, kindness and the talent which continues to bring happiness to many.
The film was directed by Sergio Leone
