Peter Frampton – The One in 901 (Behind the Song)


See guitarist Peter Frampton discuss the track “The One in 901,” from Hummingbird in a Box, a “mini-album” inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet. The music debuted in 2013 at Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center for the Arts, and two of the ballet’s spring-production 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 co-writer/co-producer Gordon Kennedy. Frampton and Kennedy teamed up on all seven original guitar pieces for Hummingbird in a Box, and previously worked together on Fingerprints, which garnered them both a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album.

Hummingbird in a Box, the latest work from legendary musician Peter Frampton, is available now via RED Distribution. The mini-album, which was inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet, is receiving widespread critical acclaim from Huffington Post, Guitar World, with Music Radar hailing the new music as “exhilarating,” and Classic Rock Magazine praising the recording as “half-an-hour of style and substance from a guitar great.”

Frampton composed all seven original guitar pieces in his virtuosic stylings, 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!” See full track listing below.

Following a massive year of touring, including 2013’s inaugural Frampton’s Guitar Circus,  Frampton is back on the road this summer. This time he 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. For details, please visit and see below for routing.

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.
