"Different Drum" by Richard Wilson moves in a swinging jazz / blues/ folk direction.
The album draws on the influences of Les Paul , Cab Calloway ,Mose Allison and Be Bop rhythms of the 50's.
However there is also a strong folk element present - as this music is truly original and hard to pigeon hole into one genre.
The lyrical content is a continuum from earlier albums and explores the spectrum of human emotion.
Augmented by drums and bass on several tracks,this album is played with energy and passion and was cut live in the studio, in an "old school " manner.
