Red Dragon Cartel’s musical style is described as “focused, fresh and fiery” while embracing the style Lee’s best known for. “It’s not like we stopped listening to music for two decades,” says Mancuso. “Modern influences certainly pop up. But there are inimitable elements to Jake’s playing – you know it’s him. It’s modern without trying to be modern.”
