Paul "Lil' Buck" Sinegal is a true Louisiana guitarist in that he's played in several styles. He may be best known as a zydeco guitarist, having played and recorded with Clifton Chenier, Rockin' Dopsie, and Buckwheat Zydeco; he played on Paul Simon's Graceland. He also worked as a session guitarist for Excello on swamp blues by Slim Harpo and Lazy Lester, and has played straight blues and funk too. In the late '90s, Sinegal recorded a decent if non-trailblazing album for Allen Toussaint's NYNO label (on which Toussaint also played keyboards and produced) that gave a good idea of his wide-ranging abilities.
