The Best of Tony Mottola

Tony Mottola (18 April 1918 – 9 August 2004) was an American guitarist who released dozens of solo albums. Mottola was born in Kearny, New Jersey and died in Denville, New Jersey.

Like many of his contemporaries he started out learning to play the banjo and then took up the guitar. He got his first guitar lessons from his father and by the late 1930's he was playing in George Hall's orchestra in a rhythm section that included [[Johnnie Guarnieri and Nick Fatool.

Mottola was one of the most sought after and respected studio musicians in the recording and music industry. He worked extensively with Frank Sinatra and Perry Como, and orchestrated albums for Burl Ives. He appeared on the DuMont Television Network program Melody Street.

Mottola also played with Doc Severinsen's Orchestra on The Tonight Show and composed music for the films Running on Empty and Violated (1953) as well as the 1950s television series Danger, which starred Yul Brynner.

Mottola was interred in Gate of Heaven Cemetery in East Hanover, New Jersey.
