The Latest Release from Legendary Musician Peter
Pressed at QRP!
Hummingbird In A Box, the latest work from legendary musician Peter Frampton.
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 seven-track 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 Cincinnati 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!”
Peter Frampton is one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock
history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for the British band, The Herd.
At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie.

Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John
Entwistle and many others. His fifth solo album, The Electrifying Frampton comes
Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.
