For the ambitious Ace of Spade part, I feel that you need to pause a little after you place the ace in the center to let people absorb what just happened. Its just like putting a coin in your hand, pause awhile, and then reveal to show your hands empty. Other than that its quite well done =)

Just one suggestion... Try to think up a good patter to go along with the effect instead of music. For example, What would you be saying for real people when you perform this for them? I think that this is one of those effects that can be confusing without patter. Especially in the last phase and especially on video.

But it was a great performance! I really liked it and it flowed nicely.

Voldemort, EXCELLENT advice, and I am just as perplexed as you by Zhang's post.

Akonn, NICE approach to Larry Jennings's Ambitious Classic! Well done! I do think that patter would help. There were a few points where I could see a spectator not quite certain of what is supposed to be happening. I, like others, do think the music is beautiful, although as a musician, I think that your tempo does not QUITE fit the feel of the music, but that is more of a musician observation.

But, apart from that little bit of constructive criticism, I really like you approach to the Jennings plot a LOT.

Ahimsa,
Vlad

If you are going to use that music go slower and make it simpler. Its like watching a fight scene from The Matrix with classical music....they don't match each other.

If you did this on the street you would blow people away with this.

Thank you for your suggestion. I know what you mean. I have never tried this one on the street yet. I will think about what I am going say.
