With a roster that boasts a wide range of leading jazz instrumentalists and singers, ACT has released some of the most influential contemporary jazz recordings of the recent past. In the years since its foundation in 1992, 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, Youn Sun Nah, Leszek Możdżer, Vincent Peirani, Emile 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.
