BEHIND THE GROOVES: a music blog by Jeff Harris
Legendary record producer and recording engineer Phil Ramone (born Philip Ramone in South Africa) - January 5, 1941 - March 30, 2013, RIP

During his five plus decades in the music industry, Phil Ramone’s work as a record producer and recording engineer made an indelible mark on popular music. The winner of 14 Grammy Awards (nominated for 33), he either produced or engineered (in some instances both) records for artists such as Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, Stan Getz,  John Coltrane, Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney, James Taylor, Diane Schuur, Andre Previn, Chicago, Natalie Cole, Luciano Pavarotti, Barry Manilow, George Michael, Carly Simon, Julian Lennon, and many others. He was also the co-owner and chief engineer of A&R Studios in New York City where a number of landmark recordings have been made since opening in 1959. Mr. Ramone is survived by his wife Karen and their three sons. Thank you, Phil for all of your great musical contributions and technical innovations. Rest well sir.
