The ACT Music roster boasts many leading jazz instrumentalists and singers. The German label ACT has released some of the most influential contemporary jazz recordings of the recent past. In the years since its foundation in 1992 by music manager and producer Siggi Loch, it has built a global presence and profile.
Over the years, ACT has championed an incredible array of jazz artists defined by their desire to push musical boundaries while reaching out to a wider audience with authenticity and innovation at their core. This list includes the likes of Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Nils Landgren, Michael Wollny, Marius Neset, Lars Danielsson, Joachim Kühn, Ulf Wakenius, Youn Sun Nah, Nguyên Lê, Leszek Możdżer, Vincent Peirani, Émile Parisien and many more.
Although the main focus of ACT is on European jazz, it has also played a significant role in the careers of US artists such as Terri Lyne Carrington, David Binney, Vince Mendoza, Vijay Iyer, and Rudresh Mahanthappa.
Having released more than 500 albums to date, the ACT label has written part of the continuing story of jazz by staying true to its mission of presenting music “in the spirit of jazz.”
