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". He received his B.A. Music from William Paterson University and MM for Jazz Trombone Studies at Rutgers University.

As a featured soloist and sideman, Peter has performed with world-class jazz artists including: Slide Hampton, Steve Turre, Steve Davis, Rufus Reid, Victor Lewis, Kenny Barron, Winard Harper, Charli Persip, Wayne Escoffery, Johnathan Blake, Josh Evans, Valarie Ponomarev, Jack Jeffers, Kenny Davis, Steve Williams, Anthony Nelson Jr., and Radam Schwartz. Most recently, Peter Lin performed at Slide Hampton's 85th Birthday with Steve Turre, Kenny Barron, Rufus Reid, and Victor Lewis. With various groups of all musical genres, he has performed at popular festivals including: The Clifford Brown Festival, The Riverview Jazz Festival, The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, and established venues such as the Blue Note, Jazz Standard, Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, Smalls, and Fat Cat. He is also the leader of The Lintet, which just released a new album With Respect, featuring jazz arrangements of Taiwanese and Chinese popular songs.
