New York, NY (Top40 Charts) He is joined by his colleagues in the musical realm, including notable artists, such as: Winard Harper, James Zollar, and Anthony Nelson Jr.

With Respect primarily features jazz arrangements of repertoire from the Chinese and Taiwanese popular songbook, as well as an original composition and an arrangement of Slide Hampton's blues.

"Peter Lin has been a good leader all along, even before this album was made. He also played well a lot of times before this so you know he can put some good music on the CD. Organizing a group of musicians is something he does all the time, I hope it's a big hit!"
-Slide Hampton

Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Taiwanese-American trombonist Peter Lin has been recently described by Downbeat Magazine as "solid, fluid, and smooth".
