Acclaimed Instrumental Guitarist Jason DeGeorge Releases Riveting Version Of Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite’s Blues-Driven Single

Jason DeGeorge Releases masterful blues cover “Nothing At All”

Renowned instrumental guitarist Jason DeGeorge, who is best known for his work with Country sensation Leanne Weiss and recently touring with Kenny Rodgers, has unveiled a riveting version of the Ben Harper/Charlie Musselwhite’s blues hit “Nothing At All” that Harper has hailed as “A masterful cover.” Available on all digital platforms, the single is the first from a collection of songs 

Describing the track as a “super passionate instrumental interpretation of the original,” DeGeorge’s version has already amassed attraction after Harper featured the single and video on his official Facebook page last week. The single features DeGeorge on guitar, piano and organ as well as Bassist Mike Klemish and Drummer Chris Badami, who also produced, engineered and mixed the song at Portrait Recording Studios in Pompton Plains, NJ. It was mastered by Grammy® Award Winning Engineer Ted Jensen (Norah Jones, Green Day, Guns N’ Roses) at Sterling Sound in Nashville, TN. 

According to DeGeorge, his version of “Nothing At All” shows a much more intimate side and one that he says is the “most expressive melody [he’s] played on guitar.” 

“Fans of mine will hear a more bluesy, elegant, version of my guitar playing,” he explains. “That is easy when playing a masterfully well written song by Ben Harper. I’m honored to have paid him a tribute in my own way!”

The original version of the song was written and recorded by Harper and iconic blues harpist Musselwhite in 2018 for their collaborative album No Mercy In This Land. Hailed as “heartfelt and contemplative” (American Songwriter), DeGeorge says the song immediately resonated with him and he knew he wanted to cover it as it was not a “typical guitar song.” 

“Ben Harper is such an amazing songwriter. The feel and performance of the original version of the song just stuck with me,” he said. “The melody would stay in my head. It didn’t take long for me to realize that my connection to this song wasn’t just as a listener. I wanted to play this song. In my own way.” 

To promote the song, DeGeorge unveiled a video which he was centered around “the concept of self-reflection”. Directed and produced by Laura Desantis-Olsson of LDO Photography, the video depicts a myriad of scenes of self-reflection including DeGeorge playing, a mother with a child and a soldier with his daughter.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Apr 3, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Apr 3, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

NEW YORK — Declassified U.S. government documents and artifacts will be part of a new exhibit about the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden at the site of the New York terrorist attack he masterminded. "Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden" opens Nov. 15 at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a multimedia account of the mission that ended with bin Laden's death in Pakistan in 2011. With direct access to the operatives who led America's feverish post-9/11 hunt for the top terrorist, the exhibit presents a sort of whodunit drama with graphics, videos and the voices of the...

China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

Apr 3, 2020

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that the head of the Chinese delegation to the International Astronautical Congress wasn't able to obtain a visa following an Oct. 12 interview, making it difficult for Chinese representatives to attend important events at the meeting. Reports said the vice chairman of the China National Space Administration, Wu Yanhua, had planned to attend the congress. Hua...

Cracks were found in a key structural part on 38 Boeing jets

Apr 3, 2020

Inspections of some older Boeing jets have turned up structural cracks in more than three dozen of them, raising a new safety issue for the company already dealing with two deadly crashes involving a newer version of the same plane. Boeing said Thursday that airlines worldwide have inspected 810 planes following an order from U.S. safety regulators. Of those, 38 — or 5% — had "findings" requiring repairs. Airlines are under orders to inspect certain Boeing 737 NG planes for cracking in a part that helps keep wings attached to the fuselage. Boeing declined to identify which airlines found problems,...
