A Different Journey is an album by drummer and bandleader Chico Hamilton recorded in 1963 and released on the Reprise label.



The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states: "lots of advanced yet logical improvising, and more than its share of variety. The group had its own sound and was quite underrated during its relatively short life. A gem". On All About Jazz David Rickert wrote "By this time Hamilton had cast off the light, chamber jazz directions he pursued in the fifties in favor of the advances of Coltrane and Coleman. In Lloyd he chose a perfect musical director; his compositions are not based on melodic heads as much as they are springboards for challenging improvisation".
