the JARREAU album. Read more about Ian on his own section on Jay's

Bill Goodwin - Master Magician.
"When thinking about the album cover photograph for
the JaR Scene 29 album picture cover shoot (photographed
by Denise Marie Luko), I had
a vision for the set, which is a close up magic room in the Magic
Castle noted as The Hat and Hare. The Magic Castle does not allow photographs so it was time to call in a favor from my good friend,
Bill Goodwin, who is the best of the best close-up magicians in the world and is the librarian at the Magical Castle. Bill's clout pulled
this off. So when doing the photo shoot, I asked Randy if it would be OK to include Bill in the photo as to have three guys sitting at
the poker table playing cards. Randy agreed leading to the JaR album cover photo.
I have noted the above since if any of you are interested in learning
close up magic, please check out Bill's website." - Jay.
