※Original from: All About Jazz: Listen Up! (July, 2007)


Bassist WeiSheng Lin grew up in Taipei, Taiwan. He began to study the double bass in his second year in college. After one year, he had started to play gigs with local musicians.

After graduating from college, WeiSheng Lin moved to New York in 1999 to study jazz in State University of New York. He completed graduate school in 2002. Since then, he has been very active in the New York jazz scene. He has played in many jazz clubs in New York City, such as Birdland, the Blue Note, and the Lenox Lounge. He has performed with Bobby Procelli, Don Sickler, Leroy Willams, Joe Cohn, John Swana, Grant Stewart, Bruce Barth, Bill Mays, Bob Dorough, Ralph Lalama, Joe Lovano, Bill Mays and Lewis Nash, T.S. Monk, Gary Smulyn, Tardo Hammer, just to name a few…

Besides playing jazz gigs, WeiSheng also play a lot of commercial music gigs, such as weddings, private parties and shows. In order to make living as a full-time musician in NYC, WeiSheng has to play as many gigs as he can.

When WeiSheng is free, he spends a lot of time doing salt-water fishing in tri-state area. One of his dreams is to catch a 30 inches stripe bass every week.
