Nautilus (Bob James tribute)

A fresh take on one of the most sampled track in Hiphop, redux by Nicolay..I can see Ghostface freestyling over this one.

From Nicolay:
"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.

They really liked my version of 'Nautilus', but the project has remained unreleased. My version did end up online, by way of a viral video. Ever since, people have been asking me for a high quality version, so... here it is! Enjoy, and please... spread the word. You are more than welcome to share the link or the file itself.

i couldnt find a live version of Nautilus but here's another funky rhodes from Mr. James:
