Three of us wrote "Cubana Be". This was the most successful, unique and the fullest collaboration in the history of jazz, I think, on that number, "Cubana Be, Cubana Bop". Here were three composers who were different, and yet they all fit with one another. It went this way: George Russell wrote the introduction—all his; I didn't even know what he was gonna write. His introduction led into the whole middle part; I wrote every note of that myself—arranged it and notated it, too. The movement of that melody, and my extra sixteen bars down in there led into Chano Pozo's solo. And all of that was Chano Pozo and me, with the montuna between us, playing counter rhythms together. Then came Chano Pozo by himself, singing and playing all the time there. After that comes George Russell—now he's summing up the part that I had written in the front. All that last part was by him, with my melody woven through it. It was just beautiful, the way it was done. I think there was never anything that came off better—even including Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. There's a lot of things that Duke and Strayhorn wrote together that sounded like one person, but this was three people, each equally involved, producing that affect.
