SOL STONE'S QUICK & CASUAL
Stone has remained an underground figure in the New York magic scene for
more than 50 years. Although many of his routines have been published in
various magazines and books, very few magicians have ever seen him perform.
His magic is
quick direct and visual. His technique is superb and he has a "soft touch"
which helps make everything he does seem very magical.
This video features some of his favorite
routines with coins, chips, pins, sponge balls, ropes, balls, and finger
performances and explanations to:
Two quarters change into a half-dollar and back to two quarters.
Quarters: A quarter magically jumps
from one hand to the other.
Eagle: A quarter placed into your fist
vanishes, as both hands are shown empty.
Two coins are placed under a clear plate held by a spectator. One of the
coins startlingly penetrates up through the glass to appear on top of the
A routine with three different colored balls accompanied by a cute
presentation. Balls are repeatedly placed in your pocket but appear back in
your hand. The routine ends with all the balls vanishing.
On, Ring Off: A borrowed ring
penetrates the center of a pen that is held at both ends by a spectator.
Just as easily the ring is pulled off the pen.
A quick linking pin routine with an acupuncture presentation.
South, East and West: As two coins are
moved to opposite sides of the table one of them magically disappears and
joins the other.
Coin: A coin repeatedly vanishes from
your hand to appear inside a little jar. The jar is sealed shut but the coin
still manages to vanish from your hand and appear inside the jar.
Cow: A quick and direct spellbound
routine presented as a poem. A silver coin changes to a purple coin and back
to silver a number of times.
For You: A piece of rope is placed
around a spectator’s neck while a knot is tied in the center of a second
rope. As the spectator holds both ends of the rope the knot disappears and
appears on the rope which has been previously draped around his neck.
Gone: A silver coin and a copper coin
vanish one at a time until nothing is left.
Sponge:A sponge ball routine with
vanishes, appearances and multiplications.
51 Cent Trick: The two-coin routine Sol
Stone developed after his plane was shot down during World War II.
