HQ pictureWith those in attendance underscoring the breadth and depth of a remarkable career in music, family and friends of multiple Grammy Award-winning music producer Phil Ramone came together in New York City on May 11, 2013, to celebrate and honor his amazing life.Ramone, who passed away on March 30, 2013, was most noted as an inspired record producer, crafting recordings that have sold into the hundreds of millions of copies for artists including Billy Joel, Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, James Taylor and many others.But Ramone, a classical violin prodigy who studied at the Juilliard School, was as deeply interested and gifted in the technology of music production, and it’s telling that in addition to his 14 Grammy Awards (out of 33 nominations), he was also the recipient of a Technical Grammyfor his many contributions to the science and art of recording.[…]After a performance of “When the Saints Come Marching In” by The Salvation Army Phil Ramone Orchestra for Children, some of the attending artists performed songs paying tribute to Ramone. Billy Joel performed “Where’s the Orchestra”; Tony Bennett sang “Fly Me To The Moon”; keyboardist/composer Dave Grusin performed “Sun Song”; Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul and Mary) performed “Day Is Done”; Shelby Lynne performed “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me”; actor Kevin Spacey evoked memories of Ramone’s work with Sinatra and performed a medley of “By Myself,” ”When Your Lover Has Gone” and “The Curtain Falls”; Nikki Yanofsky performed “You’ll Have to Swing It (Mr. Paganini)”; and Matthew Morrison performed a medley that included “Come Rain Or Come Shine” and ”Basin Street Blues.” Finally, renditions of “Slip Slidin’ Away” and “Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover” by Paul Simon, and “Smile” by Josh Groban, brought the event to a gentle and wistful conclusion.Source
