HUMMINGBIRD IN A BOX - the new album!

Hummingbird in a Box, the latest work from Peter, will be released June 23 via RED Distribution. The new music was inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet, featuring seven original guitar pieces in Frampton's virtuosic stylings. Frampton composed all songs on the mini-album along with Gordon Kennedy, who also co-produced the recording. The two previously teamed up for Fingerprints, which garnered them both a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album.

The music debuted in April 2013 at Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center for the Arts. Two of the Cincinatti Ballet’s spring production’s segments were choreographed to existing Frampton music—with Frampton and his band performing live—while a third section featured the new composition by Frampton and Kennedy. Of the project Frampton notes, “Writing for dance was a wonderfully freeing experience. There were no boundaries. We were able to push the composing envelope,” and Kennedy furthers, “Songwriters and musicians create music to move people. This was beautiful, graceful, and instantly gratifying!”

“…greatest guitar show on earth.”—USA Today
“…a guitarist first and foremost.”—The Wall Street Journal
“…the British virtuoso is still making sweet music.”—The Los Angeles Times

Following a massive year of touring, including 2013’s inaugural Frampton’s Guitar Circus, Peter Frampton is back on the road. This time Frampton will set out on a three-part catch-all tour including select solo dates, a co-headlining run with Grammy-winning American rock legends The Doobie Brothers and the return of Frampton’s Guitar Circus (more dates to come). For details, please visit http://www.frampton.com.

Kicking off in August, Frampton’s Guitar Circus will feature special performances with friend and celebrated guitarist Buddy Guy as well as other surprise guests. Last year’s Guitar Circus’ company included B.B. King, Robert Cray, Sonny Landreth, Steve Cropper, Dean DeLeo (Stone Temple Pilots), Don Felder (formerly of The Eagles), Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Vince Gill, Roger McGuinn (founder/lead guitarist of the BYRDS) and many more.

Frampton has kept quite busy over the past year in addition to touring. He was recently inducted in the Musicians Hall of Fame, performed on-stage at the Grammy’s with Ringo Starr and also played an integral part in the 50th anniversary celebration of the Beatles’ arrival in the U.S. by performing on CBS’ “The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute to The Beatles.” Frampton also produced Humble Pie’s Rockin’ The Fillmore deluxe compilation with original member Jerry Shirley (available now via Omnivore Recordings). Moreover, he worked with the Cincinnati Ballet last spring providing and composing new music for their April production. divider

HUMBLE PIE’S 'ROCKIN’ THE FILLMORE' COMING FROM OMNIVORE RECORDINGS EXPANDED TO FOUR-DISC SET!

RELEASE DATE OCTOBER 29th 2013

MIXED UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF MEMBERS PETER FRAMPTON AND JERRY SHIRLEY



Omnivore Recordings is set to release legendary super group and seminal rock act Humble Pie’s Rockin’ The Fillmore for the first time ever as a four-disc box set on October 29. The deluxe compilation was produced by original members Peter Frampton and Jerry Shirley, with A&R coordination from Bill Levenson and Cheryl Pawelski and detailed liner notes by Tim Cohan. The set features all four shows exactly as they were played on May 28 and 29, 1971 from the band’s historic Fillmore East stand with no editing or re-sequencing. The seven tracks that comprised the original album are joined here by 15 previously unissued performances—including the never-before-heard complete first set from May 28. Full track listing below.

“My God, it just took my breath away,” Shirley said of hearing the new mixes by engineer Ashley Shepherd. “You feel like you’re sitting in the Fillmore East, five or six rows back. In the quiet bits, you could hear a pin drop, and in the loud bits, you can almost feel the room shaking. And all four shows caught Steve at the absolute zenith of his powers. It’s astonishing. I’m only sorry that he, Greg, and Dee aren’t around to enjoy it with the rest of us.”

Frampton also praises the vastly improved audio quality, and was especially happy to revisit the material that wasn’t used on the original LP. “It’s like a breath of fresh air after listening to one particular version,” he says. “The beauty of it is that you get three other completely different performances of most of the songs. And it’s great to hear Steve’s banter from all of the shows. We’ve lived with [imitates Marriott] ‘It’s really been a gas!’ for 40-odd years, and now there’s more.”

Humble Pie recorded four albums and several singles before achieving its U.S. breakthrough with 1971’s double-live set Performance: Rockin’ the Fillmore. The album caught on in a big way with American listeners, hitting #21 on the U.S. album chart and becoming Humble Pie’s first Gold album.
