Darlington Jackson Playing Saw


This is the only time I have seen someone look truly cool while playing the musical saw.

I certainly wouldn't look cool doing that.

I've seen many saw players (at the annual NYC Musical Saw Festival - MusicalSawFestival.org) but none played while smoking a cigar!

I like how casual he looks. Like he finished his dinner, saw a saw, and thought he'd just add a little music to the event.
