'Off The Shelf' is the name of a new bi-weekly series on Nicolay Music. For each installment, Nicolay digs into his archives to present you with a gem that has never been released, or that has otherwise been forgotten about. New installments are posted every second and fourth tuesday of the month. Get it while the getting is good... and trust us, it is going to be GOOD!
In July of 2006, I was approached by people representing world renowned jazz keyboardist Bob James. They were working on putting together a project, to be called 'Sampling Bob James: The Nautilus Project', on which several DJ's and producers would present their take on one of the most sampled tracks in hip-hop history, 'Nautilus', from Bob James' 1974 album 'One'. To my delight, I was invited to be one of the contributors, but instead of sampling the original, I chose to 'cover' it and re-create the track from scratch.
