Energy is the 11th studio album by jazz group Fourplay, released on September 23, 2008. The cover show the four members: keyboardist Bob James, guitarist Larry Carlton, bassist Nathan East and drummer Harvey Mason. Energy grafts a variety of sounds – R&B, pop, African and more – to Fourplay’s unwavering jazz foundations. In addition to vocals by East – a charter member since the band’s 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. Fourplay's first single from Energy "Fortune Teller" was nominated for a Grammy in the category Best Pop Instrumental Performance at the 51st Grammy Awards 2009. This is guitarist Larry Carlton's last Fourplay album, before Chuck Loeb joined Fourplay in 2010.
