Corporate development

The label was founded in 2006 by Rüdiger Herzog, who previously worked as a label manager for Nonesuch Records , a sub-label of the Warner Music Group . Since its foundation, 29 albums have been released via Herzog Records (as of August 24, 2013), which can be assigned to the music genres jazz, jazz-pop, soul , funk and world music . From the label's catalog, the Nighthawks , Jeff Cascaro , Jessica Gall , Kitty Hoff and Les Brünettes have made it into the official Media Control Jazz Charts Top 30. A particular concern of Rüdiger Herzog is the long-term support and development of young, as yet unknown musicians. The label was and is supported by the Hamburg label promotion and the Initiative Musik .

Since 2010, the company has offered the promotion of internal and external music topics (Herzog Promotion) as well as the booking of concerts (Herzog Booking). Particularly noteworthy here is the placement of seven bands from Hamburg on the Dubai Jazz Festival 2010, through which an interurban and intercultural exchange could be supported.
