When I think of magicians that perfected the art of manipulation a short list comes to mind. Cardini, Channing Pollock, Lance Burton and a few more...Shimada of course.
When you add in imagination and creativity the list grows smaller and Norm Nielsen is among the few left. His magic inspired me at a young age. I'll never forget the shining coins tinkling down or the violin floating and then playing a tune as if invisible hands were plucking the strings. He will be missed but never forgotten.

Norm was on a lot of variety television shows in the US around the time I got into magic, say '72 or so. I watched with awe. So smooth. So classy. So magical. RIP, sir.

Saw Norm years ago at an early Hank Lee convention when they were still pretty small.  Saw Norm's full act from just a few feet away, it was flawless. One of the few that are on a different level with magic.

One of the elegant gentlemen. Watched his act again last night. One of those wonderful Ed Sullivan magicians, as I call them. I was raised on these wonderful legends. RIP.
