Fourplay is a contemporary American smooth jazz quartet. The original members of the group were Bob James (keyboards), Lee Ritenour (guitars), Nathan East (bass), and Harvey Mason (drums). In 1997, Lee Ritenour left the group and Fourplay chose Larry Carlton as his replacement. In 2010, Larry Carlton left Fourplay and was replaced by Chuck Loeb, who died on July 31, 2017. During Loeb's illness, saxophonist Kirk Whalum joined the group for performances.
To sweeten the pot for the hardcore fans, Fourplay recorded three new tracks for the album - Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" with vocals by Take 6, "4 Play and Pleasure," and "Any Time of Day" - all fairly uneventful. The musicianship is impeccable, the production velvety, and despite the ing-and-commuting stamp of approval, one wishes that these fine players would just cut loose and really rip once in a while.

The oft-delayed project was previously titled Love IV and due in March. The first single, Slow It Down, will premiere on Valentine’s Day. The delay is due to his work on Beyoncé’s new album. While he’s been forthcoming with details in the past, he wouldn’t say much about the record. I’ve been told to zip it, he said. However, he did reveal that he will be heading to Paris to work on Kanye West’s next album in the weeks ahead.
