Nelson Riddle also worked with Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee.

He wrote I’ve Got the World On A String’ which was sung by Sinatra and was a runaway hit.

He composed the score for the original Rat Pack movie – Ocean’s 11 and – wrote music for the Batman TV series in 1966. That score was issued on a vinyl LP and a 45 rpm disc.
He had a comeback in the 80’s with singer Linda Ronstadt – he didn’t know who she was but his daughter was a fan.
