In the computer world, they call it being on the "bleeding edge." That's the term often used for those who are just a little ahead of their time, suffering the pains that often come to pioneers who pave the way for later success that is reaped by others. Think about all those companies that had mp3 players before Apple came out with the iPod. When he first released It's Not So Easy in December 2002, Juewett Bostick was certainly on the bleeding edge of music and technology. A solid soul/smooth jazz disc, Easy was even more notable for the exquisite packaging and interactive elements that came with it, including a companion DVD that featured behind-the-scenes discussions with performers, biographies of contributing artists and information on the genesis of each track, all of which made the overall package fascinating. Those elements are not unusual in "deluxe" sets by major label stars in 2010, but for an indie artist in '02? Well, let's just say not everyone understood. Fortunately, Bostick refused to give up on the project and in late 2009 decided it was time to re-introduce It's Not So Easy to the world, but with a crisp, updated sound. Enter engineer Dave Rideau (Janet Jackson, Sting) and six months later the result was It's Not So Easy: The Dave Rideau Remixes.
