|Dave Holland chronology|
Extensions is an album by jazz bassist Dave Holland released on the ECM label in 1988. It was Dave Holland's eight album to be released on the ECM label. It features two members of his previous quintet -Steve Coleman and Marvin "Smitty" Smith - alongside guitarist Kevin Eubanks, in his first appearance on a Dave Holland record.
Holland reprised his tune Processional, first recorded on this album, on his later sextet album Pass It On.
The Allmusic review by Brian Olewnick awarded the album 4 stars calling it a "tight and enjoyable quartet date" and "One of his better albums from this period, Extensions should please any Holland fan, and is an agreeable and non-threatening jumping in point for the curious".
"Extensions" was voted Album of the Year (1989) by Downbeat Magazine.
