In this episode of the Magic Newswire's "Sprit of Magic Podcast" I am thrilled to welcome the only pupil of the legendary Walter Irving Scott known in the magic and gambling communities as The Phantom. Scott is the focus of the book that Gazzo collaborated on with David Britland entitled "Phantoms at the Card Table: Confessions of a cardsharp" . Beyond his career as a street magician, Gazzo is an expert on cons and scams and was Scott's only pupil. He was also the only person with whom Scott entrusted his biography and life's work at card cheating and sleights. Oh.. and as an aside... You can see a younger Gazzo doing his Cup's & Balls routine at the Dai Vernon Roast video below at approximately the six minute mark.
