Record label established in America's deep south in 1955 but rose to prominence as a result of its involvement in the R&B music of New Orleans.
Founded by Johnny Vincent in August 1955. Vincent was previously a salesman, then a producer for Specialty Records. Almost all of the Ace recordings were made at Cosimo Matassa's studio in New Orleans until the 1970s, when Vincent sometimes used Malaco Studios located locally in Jackson.
In 1997, Vincent sold the label to Music Collection International, a British label, and producer Bob Fisher began mining the catalog for CD release on his Westside label. MCI's US label was Music Club, which issued some CDs with the Ace material.
