Arturo O’Farrill/David Bixler The Auction Project receives fours stars in Down Beat Magazine

Down Beat magazine gave a four star review of BGSU jazz faculty member David Bixler’s new CD, saying “(Auction Project) is an ambitious project, filled with heady arrangements.  The Auction Project features jazz with Latin overtones.  Heather Martin Bixler’s violin on Auction Project helps create a contrasting sonic weave across a swath of traditional, folksy material arranged by David, eg., “Heather’s Waltz Part 1” and “Part 2,” (Down Beat, January, 2010) the sextet dishing up a great mix of Afro-Celtic “sympathies” more urban grooves.”
