His concept of the bass as a rhythm instrument, and his ability to incorporate traditional Latin lines with ideas drawn from percussion patterns, can be heard on recordings with well known Latin-jazz artists Dave Valenting, Michel Camilo, Gato Barbieri, Paquito D´Rivera, Tania Maria, and Eliane Elias. Lincoln is also known for his contemporary jazz-funk playing with John Scofiel, Mike Stern, and Bob Berg.
