    Dave Holland, on one album ("Extensions").

    As for the MBase stuff, I'm not sure. James Genus?

    Eric-
    How 'bout being a little more specific?
    Coleman goes back to the mid-'80s(?).

    I brought an M-Base Collective disc into work yesterday...Reggie Washington was playing electric bass on that particular album(Lonnie Plaxico is another M-Base bassist).

    I know Holland has an album called Extensions...does Coleman have one by that name, too?
    ...just wonderin'.
    BTW, Triplicate(another Dave Holland album)is a TRIO outing w/ Holland, DeJohnette, & Coleman.
    Pretty cool.

    I have The Sign & The Seal...whole lotta percussion & the overall tone is dense/thick.
    I actually prefer M-Base's Anatomy Of A Groove.
    Coleman is a sideman on the other stuff I have...the Dave Holland material &, I think, Robin Eubank's (electric/acoustic)solo stuff.
