Fusing Celtic, jazz and Afro-Latin influences, super group The Auction Project—led by alto saxophonist, flutist, and composer David Bixler, and featuring Grammy Award-winning pianist and composer Arturo O'Farrill—create a surprising, richly textured and thoroughly enjoyable sound. The Auction Project explores how a traditional fiddle phrase fits atop a breezy, post-bop groove as this sextet makes history and stakes out uncommon musical territory. In their review of the band's last album, Slink, WBGO writes, the album "stakes out uncommon musical territory, a place where Celtic reels merge with gospel and funk, as if it were the most natural thing on earth." In addition to O'Farrill and Bixler, The Auction Project features Grammy Award-winning percussionist Vince Cherico, Grammy-nominated accordionist Victor Prieto, violinist/fiddler Heather Bixler and bassist Carlo De Rosa.
