Nearly a quarter-century ago, bassist Dave Holland released the record “Extensions,” a glorious mix of power and complexity, featuring guitarist Kevin Eubanks, that was voted Album of the Year in the jazz magazine Downbeat.

In the decades since, Holland enhanced his reputation as one of the premier bandleaders in jazz, while Eubanks became a familiar presence to millions of Americans as a member, then leader, of Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show” band.
