Dedicated to Nelson is an album pairing Rosemary Clooney, one of the most astute traditional pop vocalists alive, with a big band swinging arrangements by the late giant Nelson Riddle is cause for joy — even if those orchestrations (drafted for Clooney’s late-’50s TV show) haven’t the distinction of Riddle’s best work. The repertoire is mostly solid, but ”Mangoes” and ”A Woman Likes to Be Told” feel dated.
