We introduce a double sum extension of a very well-poised series and extend to this the transformations of Bailey and Sears as well as the 6φ5 summation formula of F. H. Jackson and the q-Dixon sum. We also give q-integral representations of the double sum. Generalizations of the Nassrallah-Rahman integral are also found.
