First Listen: Esperanza Spalding & Bruno Mars - Old & Crazy

Every Friday, Brad Barker goes through the pile of CD’s on his desk and his hard drive to find a brand new song to play for you. It’s called your “First Listen”

Today’s First Listen is a track to get you out of any winter moments you may be experiencing because its fun. Pure fun.

Esperanza Spalding is one of the hardest working musicians in the world. She’s up for three Grammy awards come February, can be found on the upcoming Love Has Come For You from Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, on the new Joe Lovano record Cross Culture, let alone the airplay that she still garners for her own latest release Radio Music Society. 

Well, she can also be found on the latest album for Bruno Mars called Unorthodox Jukebox.  With the Target Deluxe Edition, this bonus track shines with jingle jangle and a vintage 40’s feel.
