I first saw "Riffs in a Set of 10"—veteran St. Louis actor/director Chris Limber's loving and literate tribute to the hipster attitude of the "Beat Generation"—last summer at the St. Lou Fringe Festival. At the time I was pretty much blown away by the way this ingenious hybrid jazz/cabaret act knitted together big band and Great American Songbook classics from the 20s through the 40s with Mr. Limber's original image-rich poetic soliloquies that sounded like they would have been right at home coming from a skinny guy with a goatee, black turtleneck, and shades in an underground coffeehouse circa 1958.
