Martin Nash The Charming Cheat

Recorded in Calgary, Alberta by Larry Thornton. Martin Nash performs material from his first two books, Ever So Sleightly and Any Second Now by Stephe Minch, including "Kings Incognito" (based on "Triumph"), "Palm Unseen" (a version of the "Open Travellers"), "Down the Garden Path", "Free Cut Faro Sandwich", and "Limited Ambitions" (based on Larry Jennings' "Ambitious Classic").

Trevor Lewis

This performance was recorded by Larry Thornton in San Francisco.

It includes an off-beat approach to cutting the aces involving dice, "Les Cartes Diaconis" — a version of the The General Card found in Dai Vernon's Ultimate Secrets of Card Magic, a Ace Assembly with a surprise ending and a demonstration of Dice Stacking.

Ernie Bryan Card Magic

This clip of Ernie Bryan was recorded by Larry Thornton in Spokane, WA.

This combination of card magic and gambling demonstrations includes the “Dai Vernon Poker Demonstration” from The Dai Vernon Book of Magic.


May 2020: Our thanks to Mr. Bryan’s great-grandniece Jenifer Bryan for the name correction.
