5800 W. TOUHY AVE, NILES IL 60714

EARS... in collaboration with Columbia College is extremely honored and privileged to invite iconic engineer, producer, and music legend Phil Ramone for a lively evening of music, revelry, and studio lore. Mr. Ramone has produced some of the biggest hit records of all time for artists such as Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse, Paul Simon, Billy Joel, Barbara Streisand, Dionne Warwick, and Ray Charles ... to name a few. Phil won three Grammy Awards this year alone (2012) for producing Tony Bennett's "Duets II".

Getz Gilberto Dionne Warwick - "Dionne" Bob Dylan - Blood On The Tracks
1) Yes... Phil engineered (and won a Grammy for) probably one of the best known Jazz albums of all time which includes Astrud Gilberto singing "Girl From Ipanema", 2) Recorded most of the chart-topping hits for pop music's original diva Dionne Warwick, 3) And engineered/mixed Dylan's seminal masterpiece "Blood On the Tracks"

It just so happens that Phil was on hand to record Ms. Marilyn Monroe singing the infamous "Happy Birthday Mr. President" to John F. Kennedy. Few can lay claim to something so audacious.

Making Records: Book Cover

In 2007 Phil Ramone published his book "Making Records: The Scenes Behind the Music". Ramone writes an engaging story of his ascension in the music industry, from working as a studio apprentice to engineering recording sessions and ultimately producing albums and live events.

The chapters in this book include personal memoirs and detailed accounts in the making of some of the biggest hit songs ever recorded.
