"Ennea" was the second album by jazz-rock fusion band Chase. It did not repeat the commercial success of their debut album, probably because the band intentionally shifted their focus away from the trumpet section.

The original lineup from the first album was changed midway through the recording sessions, with Gary Smith taking over from Jay Burrid on drums and G. G. Shinn replacing Terry Richards on lead vocals.

The six songs on side two of the album comprise a jazz suite entitled "Ennea", with lyrics based on Greek mythology. The album's title is the Greek word for nine, a reference to the nine band members.

The single "So Many People" saw limited airplay in the U.S. The album charted for just 12 weeks, peaking at #71. [http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Castle/2685/chase.html]
