Ep 9 - Song 5: "Somewhere" by The Des Moines Big Band

"The Des Moines Big Band was founded in 1959 and has been going strong ever since. Well known for hundreds of miles around...

"Our mission is to present our community with a place to hear cutting edge jazz without leaving town to do it! We commission new compositions from nationally-recognized composers every year while still keeping the classics in the book...

"We play because we love jazz and feel a real sense of responsibility for keeping it alive and vibrant. Please join us in celebrating a truly original American art form!"
