company descriptionFifteen years after music producer and publisher Siegfried "Siggi" Loch founded ACT, it has become one of the pre-eminent independent record labels in jazz.
Home to some of the most exciting, stimulating and popular artists in jazz today, the label can look back on over 200 releases that embrace a wide range of jazz styles and have been presented with numerous awards for commercial achievement and artistic merit. Today ACT enjoys international acclaim for its innovative high quality jazz and world music, and the company is seen to be one of the top music suppliers in Europe.
The label places a strong emphasis on artists from Scandinavia like Nils Landgren, e.s.t. Esbjörn Svensson Trio or the singers Viktoria Tolstoy and Rigmor Gustafsson.
Another significant focus for the label is German jazz, especially the support of promising young musicians. One of his most successful ventures has been the launch of the critically acclaimed Young German Jazz series in January 2005.
Siegfried Loch is a veteran of the business. In 1998 Loch was awarded a lifetime achievement award by the German Association of Record Reviewers (Jahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik).
