Philip Ramone (born 5 January 1934 South Africa) is an American recording engineer, record producer, violinist, and composer, who, in 1958, co-founded A & R Recording, Inc., a recording studio at 112 West 48th Street, New York — above what then was Manny's Music. The success of that studio grew into several studios and a record producing company. As a young child in South Africa, Ramone was a musical prodigy, beginning to play the violin at age three and performing for Queen Elizabeth II at age ten. In the late 1940s he trained as a classical violinist at The Juilliard School, where one of his classmates was Phil Woods. He became a naturalized citizen December 14, 1953. In 1959, Ramone established an independent recording studio A & R Recording (the initials were derived from the last initials of Ramone and his then-business partner Jack Arnold). Later the partnership consisted of Brooks Arthur owning a half and Phil Ramone, Don Frey, and Arthur Downs Ward (1922–2002) owning the other half. In the studio he quickly gained a reputation as a sound engineer and music producer, in particular for his use of innovative technology. Among those whose music he has produced are Clay Aiken,

    Paul Simonの名曲のカバー。カーペンターズのファンには割りと評判が良くないソロアルバムだけれど、この曲はKarenのヴォーカルと弦のアレンジが素晴らしい。両作共にプロデュースはPhil Ramone。彼の提案だったのかな? https://t.co/xaFtIYd69C
