Dream Dancing is Ella Fitzgerald's second great collection of songs by Cole Porter. The first, in 1956, was the initial installment of her definitive series covering the works of America's finest songwriters. Twenty-two years later, Fitzgerald returned to Porter, this time in the company of Nelson Riddle, whom many singers of the late twentieth century considered the master of orchestral accompaniment. Riddle fashioned for The First Lady of Song arrangements that fit her magnificent voice and style. He incorporated as seasonings such modern sounds as the Hammond B-3 organ and a guitar influenced by urban blues and rock, but this is the Riddle who buoyed so many swinging Frank Sinatra records. Inspired by her musical surroundings, Ella overcame failing health to turn in some of the best performances of her late career.

with J.J. Johnson, Dick Noel, Bill Watrous, Christopher Riddle, Don Christlieb, Bobby Tricarico, Mahlon Clark, Bill Green, Norman Benno, Gordon Schoneberg, Harry Klee, Wilbur Schwartz, Al Aarons, Carroll Lewis, Shorty Sherock, Charles Turner, Ralph Grasso, Paul Smith, John Heard, Louie Bellson, Nelson Riddle (conductor)
