Basic disks are independent from any other disk (excluding RAID) and can be moved to another computer and opened.
Dynamic disks are dependent on another disk to be used and cannot readily be moved to another computer and opened (at least that was true for me the last time I had a dynamic disk).  I do not see dynamic disks any more.

Volumes are storage areas on a disk (like a partition).

A volume is the logical container, which is used to host the file system. A volumn can be a raw disk, a partition. It can also span multiple disks or multiple partitions.

In windows Dynamic disks are used so you can create Software RAID. With basic disks you can't do that. Volumes are the partitions you create with the file-system on it, so you can access this via your OS.
