We just played Oblivion for Violin, cello and piano for a cafe concert. You could probably do it for violin and piano although I would hate to lose the delicious cello part.

EVERYBODY who plays jazz has this book. It is the "Bible" of standards.

Great piece, originaly transcribed for quartet by the composer for KRONOS.

"Tango Ballet", "Tangadia", and many other tango pieces by Astor Piazzolla

we (odeonquartet) perform these pieces often and audiences love it!

And Earl Klugh tunes work very well for a quartet, if you can arrange them.

A great quartet arranger is Michael Harrisson, but I am not sure how to contact him? Just heard Holland, before he was injured, play a few of Harisson's arrangements at a pub in Irvine. Holland would make anything sound good, but even he said these were some of the best arrangements he had played. I am sure this arranger has arranged a lot of material like this, as well as many of the classics.

All great tunes.

Good luck with it!
