ACT Music

"Today ACT is considered one of the finest curators of progressive jazz and creative music.” DOWNBEAT.

With a roster that boasts a wide range of 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 who are defined by their desire to push musical boundaries while reaching out to a wider audience with both 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 then 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".
ACT Story

Siggi Loch

Siggi Loch

"My philosophy has always been not to look from musicians but for artist personalities of great independence and the recognisable will to inspire an audience."

ACT label boss Siegfried "Siggi" Loch is one of the most successful managers in the international music business and is considered the discoverer and producer of such lauded names as Klaus Doldinger, The Rattles, Katja Ebstein, Amon Düül, Can, Heinz Rudolf Kunze, Marius Müller-Westernhagen and Al Jarreau – to name just a few. At the age of 25 Loch was the youngest boss of an international record company (Liberty-United Artists). At the end of the 80s he turned his back on the major business as president of WEA Europe, and set out to fulfil his childhood dream by founding his own independent label "ACT" in 1992, which is today one of the leading brands in European jazz. Ever since then "In the Spirit of Jazz" has been Loch's guiding principle: music far removed from a predefined style, without being afraid of mixing genres and crossing boundaries. In line with and ahead of the times. For people with open ears and open minds. For the spirit and for the soul.
