“One of rock ‘n’ roll’s lifelong major players” – Rolling Stone

The song, which was originally written by Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell, and popularized by Ray Charles, is taken from All Blues—Frampton’s first-ever blues album with the Peter Frampton Band—out now via UMe/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. All Blues remained at the #1 position on the Billboard Blues Albums Chart for 14 weeks, marking Frampton’s best overall sales numbers and chart positions since the release of Fingerprints in 2006. USA Today raves, “All Blues captures Frampton at full technical and emotional power.” The album is available HERE. The vinyl version includes the bonus track “I Feel So Good” (written by Big Bill Broonzy, originally performed by Muddy Waters) and is also available now as a limited edition translucent blue color pressing exclusively at PeterFrampton.com.
All Blues was recorded with Frampton’s longtime touring band, made up of Adam Lester (guitar/vocals), Rob Arthur (keyboards/guitar/vocals) and Dan Wojciechowski (drums). The album was recorded at Frampton’s studio in Nashville, Studio Phenix, and was co-produced by Frampton and Chuck Ainlay. It features collaborations with Kim Wilson, Larry Carlton, Sonny Landreth and Steve Morse.
Moreover, Frampton is nearing the end of The Farewell Tour. He will retire from regular vigorous touring at the end of this year due to his diagnosis of the autoimmune disease Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM). IBM is a progressive muscle disorder characterized by muscle inflammation, weakness and atrophy. Frampton discussed his diagnosis with CBS “This Morning: Saturday” ahead of the tour, and most recently, in a part two episode with CBS “This Morning” taped at his Madison Square Garden show last month, watch HERE.
The show continues to receive rave reviews across the country:
“He can rest assured he went out on top.”— New York Post
“[It’s] a show so triumphant and buoyant you could hardly believe this guy had anything more than a cold…for something billed as a finale, it sounded as if Frampton was just getting started”— Philadelphia Inquirer
“He is more alive and no less a guitar ninja than ever before.”— Tulsa World
“No classic rocker regularly and honestly shows as much palpable joy in performing as he does.”— Houston Press
“Frampton displayed a clear and muscular vocal, along with the extraordinary musicianship that has made him one of the great guitarists of the rock era.”— Sun Sentinel
The tour features the Peter Frampton Band, plus Steve Mackey on bass. Special guests include Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening, as well as Julian Frampton Band on the west coast stops. Full itinerary, tickets and VIP packages are available at www.frampton.com. $1 of every ticket sold, as well as any donations, will benefit The Peter Frampton Myositis Research Fund at Johns Hopkins, a newly established fund by Frampton and Johns Hopkins, where he’s being treated.
Peter Frampton remains one of the most lauded artists in rock history. The Music Business Association just presented him with the Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement at the Awards & Hall of Fame Dinner that is part of the Association’s annual conference—Music Biz 2019. Frampton was also recently honored with the Les Paul Innovation Award at the 2019 NAMM Show’s 34th annual TEC Awards, and celebrated the 43rd anniversary of his fifth solo album, Frampton Comes Alive!, one of the top-selling live records of all time (over 17 million copies sold worldwide).
