(Thomas J.) Tommy Tedesco (July 3, 1930 - November 10, 1997) was an American session musician, who worked for many TV shows as well as famous musicians from Frank Sinatra to Elvis Presley. He was also active as a jazz and bebop guitarist.

Tedesco provided guitar, bells, bongos for Lumpy Gravy. According to Carol Kaye, he also played 12-string on Freak Out!; However, the album credits, and the session sheets from the Musicians Union don't support that story.

Tommy Tedesco is also mentioned and thanked in the liner notes of The MOFO Project/Object (2006) album. [1]
