    As far as trumpet and clarinet playing in unison, or, vocal, back and forth, it would go back to a time before we were born. Together, I mean as a duet.

    A typical BIG BAND will have a drummer, a bass, a singer or two (one male one female.) Five saxophones. Five Trumpets. and Five of our big brothers, the trombone.

    And, yes, from where you're talking, in genre, they branch apart abruptly, to where each have their own voice, alone, in turn, in a song to express separate emotionality, not togetherness.

    Listen, right now,I'm listening to "Unforgivable Blackness" by Wynton; there is much, much clarinet in it. it's great. It is also that roaring twenties/thirties sound, with piano, banjo, and I love it.
