Joshua Smith is the Principal Flutist of the Cleveland Orchestra and a featured Road Warrior in Marketplace’s ongoing series about the soundtracks to your business travels. While Smith’s career exposes him to a lifetime of music and performance, it’s nature’s music that he turns to when he’s on the road. He chose a series of rare 1987 field recordings by Bernie Krause, called “Nature,” as the soundtrack for his travels. Smith’s extended playlist includes more, easier to find, nature recordings of which he writes: “I like a lot of these especially loons, gulls and doves.”
