Dedicated to Nelson is a 1996 studio album by American jazz singer Rosemary Clooney, dedicated to the arranger Nelson Riddle.

Clooney's television show from 1956-57 featured arrangements by Riddle, and the original arrangements are transcribed here, performed by a big band.

Riddle also arranged two studio albums by Clooney, Rosie Solves the Swingin' Riddle! from 1960, and 1963's Love. Clooney and Riddle had an affair lasting several years, which contributed to the breakup of their respective marriages.[2]
