I would also suggest the James Lewis routine for Million Dollar Mysteries.


Well Paul, you wet my appetite, I ordered your "In the Trenches" dvd, and Cody Fisher's "Real World Copper/Silver/Brass" set from Hocus Pocus today.
It seems I am lucky, I still have James Lewis' video in my possesion.

David, I'm interested to know when your book/video is coming out. Please keep me informed.

Dear Café,

I have a CSB routine that I think is worth mention. You can find a more detailed review at coinvanish.com on my video "Unforgettable Coin Magic".

Here are some of the advantages of this routine:

1) Starts completely clean (all coins examined)
2) Three highly visual transpositions (phase two in spectators' hand)
3) NO going to the pockets to switch out coins
4) NO exposing "extra coins" as a phony explanation
5) At no time do you ask the spectators "where" the coins are
6) There is a suprise KICKER ending
7) You end absolutely clean

This is one of my favorite routines for walk around. This effect is always a hit during my lectures as it never fails to fool magicians...even if they "know" the trick!

If anyone has a specific questions please feel free to PM me. Also, if anyone already has this routine and would like to know how I have altered the handling you can PM me for that info as well.

I hope this helps,
Cody S. Fisher

Cody, It so happened I ordered your set of Real World Copper/Silver/Brass set this Friday, but I didn't know there was also a video out of your coinwork.
From where can I obtain it?

Cheers
Peo

Peo,
The video was no longer available until recently. It is called "Unforgettable Coin Magic". I did an initial run of 1000 copies and thought that would be enough as this was only sold by me. This video has pretty much sold itself by word-of-mouth! I have been completely out for over a year, however due to demand, I decided to have it redone. You can get this from my friends at Hocus-Pocus or directly from me.

I hope this helps,
Cody S. Fisher

Add me to the professionals who recommend Paul Green's In The Trenches DVD. It's outstanding. Well-shot, well-thought, well-presented REAL WORLD magic you will use.
And, BTW, I do not know Paul personally and am not being compensated for my recommendation. Smile

I agree with you Lary. I did receive the dvd last week. This is the first C/S/B I noticed that does not require any pockets. I will have to give it an "A+."

Greetings,

Million Dollar Mysteries is a great video from James Lewis.

This tape is actually one of my favorites. I'm hoping they will put it out on DVD.

Everything James does on this tape is excellent! He has a great Cop/Sil/Brass routine along with some other really, really good coin work. He's got an awesome coins through GLASS TABLE! It almost looks like trick photography. Be warned, some of the effects on this tape are of the high difficulty level.

If you haven't seen James Lewis perform you're missing out. He's great!

Sorry, I got little of topic with my post. However, I wanted to answer Frank's question.

James Lewis also had (still has?) separate manuscripts on the CSB and coins through glass table effects.

When I performed at the Castle two years ago James and I talked about some technical problems of a coin routine I did. When I left he gave me his video.
Back at home I discovered that among the extremely strong material that's on the video, there was a very clever solution to my coin problem.

Conclusion: Not only is James a very good magician and friendly person, he also knows how to be really educational when it comes to discovering new techniques.

To get back to the topic, his CSB is the best I know and the only one I do. Before I learned his version I did Doc Eason/Bob Sheet/JC Wagner's thing. I played with the John Bannon routine as well as the English counterpart Chinese Bit from Ken Brooke.

For anyone interested in ordering Jim Lewis' fantastic videotape, here's an e-mail I just got from Denny and Lee that describes it:

"MILLION DOLLAR MYSTERIES VIDEO by James Lewis-$40.00 (BACK IN STOCK!!!)
This is one of the finest videos on close up magic you will ever see. James Lewis performs his full 22 minute close up magic act live at the Magic Castle and then gives you a full 55 minute private lesson on the entire act. These are NOT just explanations but step by step instructions that make these routines easier to learn. Eight effects and not one of them is a card trick. There are seven coin routines and one devastating handling of the classic professor's nitemare that will change the way you have been doing it. Just look at these sleights and effects:

UTILITY PURSE SWITCH-This is James' totally deceptive switch of one coin purse for another even when the crowd is burning your hands.

MISMADE DOLLAR BILL-Learn the Lewis handling of the Kozlowski $100 bill switch with the mismade bill from the guy who created the routine.

CHANGE FOR A DOLLAR-A borrowed and signed bill changes places with four quarters inside a coin purse. 

PURSE FRAME COIN PRODUCTION-An easy and baffling production of three coins from the empty purse frame.

DIRECT COINS THROUGH THE TABLE-If you were really "magic" then this is the way it would look. Each coin is shown cleanly just before passing through.

VISIBLE COINS THRU GLASS TABLE-You won't believe your eyes especially when the final coin visibly travels up through the glass table top.

HYPNOTIZING THE PROFESSOR-The Professor's Nitemare handling that most pros have adopted for their own routines.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE-If you own a set of the Johnson Silver Copper Brass transposition coins, then you simply MUST see this routine used by James Lewis combining the coins with a coin purse.

SINGLE COIN TRIPLE CHANGE SPELLBOUND-This routine is a "performance only" routine. One single coin visibly changes three times ala Dai Vernon's Spellbound.
This really is one of my all time favorite videos on close up magic!!!"

Geoff Latta's CopSilBrass routine in Kaufman's Coin Magic is a fooler and doesn't use the traditional gaff. Bob Kohler's variation (in his notes Kohler's Tap, available on his website Bobkohlermagic.com) takes the trick to another level and will fool people who know Latta's routine. If you're really looking to explore this effect, both are highly worthy of your consideration. But be warned: each requires advanced technique. . .

James Lewis coins through glass table is fantastic. His presentation for the professors nightmare is very funny too. This tape is highly reccomended. Some of the stuff on it is fairly hardcore, but the entertaiment value is high too.

I was lucky enough to see Latta lecture and demonstrate his CSB routine. To be fully honest, I did not see anything that different in the begining, but by the end I loved it. Then when he showed how he does not even use the usual CSB gimmick I was blown away. I am ditching my gimmick and learning this routine as as soon as I can get a copy of the lecture notes.

The routines mentioned here are all very good. I'm particularly fond of the work of Paul Green, James Lewis, and John Bannon on CSB. Because of my interest in this effect, I just purchased Cody Fisher's CSB routine, and I'm interested in learning about the alternate handling Cody mentioned in his post.

I like Cody Fisher's routine. Like other contemporary purveyors of magic, he borrows some elements from the above-mentioned magicians, including J.C. Wagner, and he gives full credit to them.

The packaged routine and props provide a real convenience if you do not have the necessary coins at hand, and a "Goshman" style purse (engineered for use in the routine) is also provided.

The modified purse idea is good. Paul Green's work with a ungaffed Chinese brocade purse is also very good. John Bannon's use of a more traditional men's change keeper seems somehow more natural for me to carry (as a manly magician). Not too many American men seem to carry a change purse, but the first two types of coin purses would be very natural for female magi, and of course for the rest of us who are secure enough to bring out a coin purse (or just a purse frame).

Thanks for discussing a favorite effect, and to creative magicians like Paul Green and Cody Fisher for sharing their thoughts.

I just recived Paul Green's "In the Trenches" DVD this week.
Loved his "2 Copper 1 Silver" routine, which can be switched to a C/S/B set.
That is the routine I'm going to work on using Cody Fisher's set.
Thanks Paul & Cody!
