The Auction Project featuring Grammy-winning pianist Arturo O'Farrill and jazz saxophonist and composer David Bixler will perform tonight at 7:30 p.m. in St. Timothy's Episcopal Church in Perrysburg and Friday at 7 p.m. in the University of Toledo's Center for Performing Arts  Recital Hall.
According to band's promotional material,  the musicians "cross musical boundaries, improvising over traditional Irish jigs and original Bixler compositions, over a tapestry of Afro-Cuban percussion, in a fierce, freewheeling manner."
Joining Bixler and  O'Farrill piano will be Heather Martin Bixler, violin, Carlo DeRosa, bass, and Vince Cherico drums.
The band's self-titled album received four stars from Downbeat Magazine.
O'Farrill leads the Afro_Latin Jazz Orchestra.  Bixler, director of jazz studies at Bowling Geen State University, has toured the world with Lionel Hampton, Toshiko Akiyoshi and the Duke Ellington band, as well as leading his own quintet.
