The 82-year-old music legend “had some shortness of breath and in an abundance of caution he went in for observation,” according to his rep, Arnold Robinson. “He is fine though.”

Jones himself tweeted, “Had a little shortness of breath, but all is good. Still much to do. God Bless.”

Jones’ celebrated career as a record producer and arranger has included collaborations with Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra and Ray Charles., earning him a near-record 27 Grammys, as well as an Academy Award and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  He’s also the father of actress Rashida Jones.
