From 2003 to 2018, pianist and composer Rob Clearfield was a fixture on the Chicago jazz scene, performing with many of the city's most exemplary musicians. In January 2019, he moved his operation to Paris, France, bringing his somber-yet-hopeful tones to the other side of the Atlantic. On April 4, Clearfield will return to Chicago for the first time since his departure, presenting new and old compositions with three of his most trusted allies, including New York-based saxophonist Caroline Davis.
Information Superhighway
Information Superhighway was formed in 2004 out of the chemistry between vocalist Leslie Beukelman and keyboardist/composer Rob Clearfield. Along with bandmates Patrick Mulcahy (bass) and John Smillie (drums), the Superhighway blended equal parts jazz improvisation, ambient shoegaze, prog rock, and hope-in-the-face-of-modern-existential-dread to create their own sonic landscape. After two albums and countless shows, Information Superhighway casually disbanded in 2012. On December 12, they will reunite for one night only!
