The world needs more magicians
like Baltazar Fuentes. Fluid, smooth, understated, and clean.
In the right circles, the name
Baltazar Fuentes comes up a lot (mostly because of his Revolution Pass,
which is also featured on this DVD). He chilled with Marlo and has sessioned
with all the big guys. And if you go to Mexico, he is “the” guy
But how do the rest of us access
his magic? For years, the only way was to obtain two hard-to-find and,
frankly, frustrating lecture notes. The items featured inside were great
(many of them are collected on this DVD), but without enough photos
or details, we could only imagine what this stuff is supposed to look
I’m glad Baltazar is releasing
a DVD, because he is the kind of performer who deserves
to be seen and not just read. He has a great pair of hands and his style
is a mixture of classical old-school elegance and a quirky, creative
flair. The matrix routine he performs here, invented by Fenik, is terrific.
Now let’s come back to the
Revolutionary Pass for a second. In the video demo this looks a bit
like the Midnight Shift or a Hermann style pass. Not so. For those of
us who collect moves that are as fun to learn and practice as they are
to perform, this pass is a must-have. SO MUCH is going on behind the
hands, and it FEELS SO GOOD to execute this shift.
The other thing we like about
this DVD is the variety of material: you get the card material Baltazar
is known for, but I was surprised that he also performs magic with balls,
rope, coins, and other items. It’s a good value, and a better resource
than his scarce lecture booklets.
This DVD includes 9 solid routines,
new moves, and amazing concepts.
