Released in 1992, ACT's very first recording, Jazzpaña, was to become a milestone and synonym for the label's philosophy, and became a double Grammy nominee in the process. Jazzpaña brought the stars of the Nuevo Flamenco from Spain together with US jazz greats such as Michael Brecker, Peter Erskine and Al Di Meola, backed by the sound of the WDR Big Band. One album became two in 2000 with Jazzpaña II - a smaller band led by Gerardo Núñez and Chano Domínguez. Now, 15 years on from Jazzpaña II, ACT presents Jazzpaña live.

From the perspective of a graphic designer a certain level of boldness and the playful use of clichés are indeed welcome. Several years ago a CD was released on whose cover a bull was depicted with the skyline of Manhattan in the background. For another production one opted for different symbols: an Andalusian half-boot on the right side, a sneaker on the left. The albums Jazzpaña, Jazzpaña II and Jazzpaña Live (the fusion already happening on the nominal level) featured a flamenco dancer on their covers, one of his legs depicted as a saxophone.

Swedish Folk Modern first appeared in 1998 and was the first duo collaboration between Nils Landgren and Esbjörn Svensson. At the time the well-known German jazz journalist and pianist Michael Naura wrote: "Don’t ignore the CD Swedish Folk Modern, with first class Swedish improvisers Nils Landgren (trombone) and Esbjörn Svensson (piano). At last something beautiful after all the rubbish which is appearing on the market. This CD release became a worldwide success and was followed by the CD Layers Of Light (ACT 9281-2) in 2001.

Unfamiliar combinations in music can lead to surprising, captivating results. At the “Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic” concert in October 2014, series curator Siggi Loch presented Swedish guitarist Ulf Wakenius in a new and unexpected role: as second guitarist alongside the undisputed master of flamenco nuevo, Gerardo Núñez. The combination of Wakenius and Núñez has succeeded in sending the Jazzpaña project off into a wholly new direction. The Tagesspiegel described the occasion as a “mighty fiesta.” Sparks definitely flew, Núñez had an appetite for more of the same, and he invited his Swedish colleague straight back to Madrid for the re-match.
