The Act Story

2010-04-28
Running ACT is more a labor of love than a business. For me the music comes first and for more than 18 years I am grateful to have been able to produce and publish interesting and challenging music of my personal liking and to share this enthusiasm with music fans around the world. Siggi Loch ACT founded by music producer and publisher Siegfried “Siggi” Loch in October 1992, is one of the preeminent independent record labels in jazz today. Announcing its presence in the market with the release of the critically acclaimed Jazzpaña that received two American Grammy nominations and a German Jazz Award, ACT’s remarkable success story quickly gathered momentum.

Leszek Możdżer on Act Music!

2011-06-24

Leszek Możdżer uses his solo ACT debut as an opportunity to pay homage to the second great national hero of Polish music (next to Chopin), Krzysztof Komeda. The jazz pianist and film score composer died in 1969 aged just 38, but by this time had written, amongst other things, the soundtracks for almost all of Roman Polanski’s films. “Komeda is one of my idols,” says Możdżer. “I can still remember the first time I heard his music, it was incredible, this great depth and wisdom that appeared. Over time, I found out more about his biography and immense dedication to music. One of my favourite quotes by him is, ‘Live for music, not from music.’” The listener can hear that Możdżer’s Komeda project has undergone a long maturing period. “The album’s producer, Paweł Potoroczyn, tried to get me into the studio with it for six years. He’s only managed it now. I just didn’t feel ready for it earlier.”
