Green matadorGrant Green recorded so much high-quality music for Blue Note during the first half of the '60s that a number of excellent sessions went unissued at the time. Even so, it's still hard to figure out why 1964's Matador was released only in Japan in 1979, prior to a wider release. Musicians featured include pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Elvin Jones. It is without doubt one of Green's greatest achievements.
