Sam Gutman performs a Seaboard RISE arrangement of the iconic 1996 hip-hop track, Killing Me Softly (based on the original Roberta Flack classic from 1972). Gutman has toured extensively with Ms. Lauryn Hill in the Lauryn Hill Orchestra.

  1. I recommend that individuals, to the extent they can find the time, attend classical music concerts in their local area, especially those featuring classical acoustic instruments. I believe this can significantly aid in their ability to distinguish and appreciate the distinctive qualities of these performances compared to electronically generated ones.

  2. The second half is much better than the first half. It doesn’t seem that the channel pressure range is very high on the seaboard. The performance lacked the kind of dynamics that it called for. I imagine an arrangement performed on the Osmose would allow for those dynamics and sound less stiff.
