Producer Phil Ramone in Critical Care With Aortic Aneurysm

Legendary music producer Phil Ramone has been hospitalized in New York City after suffering an aortic aneurysm. 

The 71-year-old is being treated by critical care for the condition in which the aorta is more than 1.5 times its normal size and is in danger of rupturing. 

Ramone has 33 Grammy nominations and 14 awards. His first work was with Leslie Gore on hits like It's My Party and She's a Fool and grew into one of the most impressive production resumes of the last 25 years including work with Billy Joel (most albums), Frank Sinatra (Duets), Tony Bennett (all three Duets albums), Ray Charles (Genius Loves Company), Brian Setzer (Guitar Slinger), Chicago (Hot Streets), Rod Stewart (Great American Songbook series), Paul Simon (Still Crazy After All These Years, So Beautiful or So What) and the Carpenters. 

More information as it becomes available.
