Jazz Aces is an Ace Assembly card routine done with the aces and only four other cards by Peter Kane that was first published in Another Card Session with Peter Kane (1971).

Video to give the flavor of this routine

Effect: The performer places the four aces face down on the table in a row. He holds four black spot cards and places one onto the "leader" Ace. He takes one of the other aces into his hand. The Ace vanishes from the packet and appears with the leader Ace. This is repeated with the other two aces.

Peter also used to perform this effect with 2 jumbo cards that had been cut into quarters (to help hide one of the inconsistencies in the trick).

It's a simplification of Seven Card Assembly by Edward Marlo first described in Ibidem no. 23, March 1961.
