I am looking for the name of a sont that I saw Wynton perform on a PBS special back in the the late 70’s or early 80’s.  What was unique about the song/performace was that on one passage, he made the song sound as if 2 TRUMPET performers were playing, when it was just him playing. One passage was playing a fast section and at the same time, a slow passage was playing perfectly in sync.  And you would swear that it was a duet.  I know this is a very vague description and it was a long time ago, but if anyone can lead me to the name of the song/cd, I would appreciate it
