I'm in a classical music program in college. I suggested to my guitar professor that we should play some jazz in guitar ensemble. But when ask exactly what we should play, I couldn't think of anything at the time. So, my question is: what would be some good jazz peices that could be arranged for four guitars? It doesn't have to be guitar based.

You'd have to compose some counter parts yourself but, I can see Take Five being done really well. I preformed this with a CT Jazz Ensemble band at a Forum Music Festival in California and took home a gold.

take five would be amazing, if you could pull off some composing yourself like he said^

I would suggest any type of Bill Evans song, there's enough harmonic craziness in those songs that four guitars might not even be enough to fufill the demand of the changes.

But my personal favorite Evans standard would have to be "Time Remembered".

Like I said, "Time Remembered" would be something that I bet could sound really interesting in that arrangement. His best versions were either on the album "The Interplay Sessions" or on "Loose Blues". I like both.
