Question and Answer

Extensions is an album by jazz bassist Dave Holland released on the ECM label in 1990.[1] 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".[2]
