Ennea is a genus of Streptaxidae, described by H. Adams & A. Adams in 1855.


"Ennea" a.k.a. "Nine" is a 2009 musical drama film directed and produced by Rob Marshall. The screenplay, written by Michael Tolkin and Anthony Minghella, is based on Arthur Kopit's book for the 1982 musical Nine, which was suggested by Federico Fellini's semi-autobiographical film 8½. Maury Yeston composed the music and wrote the lyrics for the songs.

"Ennea" was the second album by jazz-rock fusion band Chase. It did not repeat the commercial success of their debut album, mostly due to the lack of a top 40 hit and the extended suite to Greek Mythology on side 2, which lacked the "commercial appeal" the first LP had. Ennea is basically a further refinement of the trumpet-rock innovations from the first LP, yet while the first album made its greatest impact in the sheer novelty of four trumpets plus a rock rhythm section, Ennea begins to explore the possibilities of this lineup and to challenge it. On this album, the group pull out all the stops and musically almost thumb their noses at BS&T and Chicago.


Ennea is a genus of air-breathing land snails, terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusks in the family Streptaxidae.
