"Ain't Nothing But a Cyber Coup & You" is the title track from Mark Dresser's album of the same name via Clean Feed. Bassist Dresser has always made music at once serious, compelling, and playful, prioritizing creativity while addressing larger questions of the day. So it is with "Ain't Nothing But a Cyber Coup & You." The sophomore release by The Mark Dresser Seven showcases six new compositions plus solo bass interludes and features Dresser with flutist Nicole Mitchell, multi-reed player Marty Ehrlich, trombonist Michael Dessen, pianist Joshua White, drummer Jim Black and violinist Keir GoGwilt.
