According to some very basic laws of nature, when powerful forces come together, some form of energy is created usually in large amounts. In music, the laws of interaction are no different. When keyboardist Bob James, bassist Nathan East, guitarist Larry Carlton and drummer Harvey Mason come together as Fourplay, the result is Energy (HUCD 3146), the Heads Up debut of the acclaimed contemporary jazz quartet scheduled for worldwide release on September 23, 2008.
Energy grafts a variety of sounds R&B, pop, African and more to Fourplays unwavering jazz foundations. In addition to vocals by East a charter member since the bands inception in 1990 the album also features a vocal track by Esperanza Spalding, the upright bassist, composer and vocalist who has recently taken the jazz world by storm with her self-titled recording debut earlier this year on Heads Up.
