about

Formed around the seasoned rhythm section of Dave Kurtiak (bass) and Donovan Pfeifer (drums) with special guests on guitar, keys and brass, A Modest Menagerie, is a new ensemble featuring some of Seattle’s finest players coming together to create a new sound. Drawing on a similar formula from previous groups from Kurtiak and Pfeifer (How Now Brown Cow, The Combustion Collective), A Modest Menagerie is an improvised music collective combining jazz, funk, and other genres into their own varied mixture. This recording features special guest Ralph Reed (guitar), Matt Rankin (sax) and Scott Morning (trumpet). Recorded live and 100% improvised December 15, 2011 at The Shipwreck Tavern in Seattle WA.

about

Dave Kurtiak Seattle, Washington

There is something about the low sub-sonic feeling of bass that has and will always amaze me.

My influences and background are as varied as my playing. Some of my favorites include a list of who's who on bass - Michael Manring, Jaco, Rocco Prestia, Stu Hamm, Stanley Clarke, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, and so many others.

My current projects include How Now Brown Cow and A Modest Menagerie.
