Repertoire for performing for a music academy

I need some help choosing repertoire for performing for a music academy.

I am going to try and join a music university in Norway. Unfortunatly I cant play a django-tune or one of my compositions at the test. I can chose from April Joy(Pat Metheny), Straight No Chaser(standard), Stella By Starlight(standard), Peace(Horace Silver).
And some fusion and a Jimi Hendrix tune.

Do any of you know if any of the gypsy guitarists have played and recorded any of the songs above? Would be much appriciated..

Thanks in advance
Band up and running! Finaly!

    the Rosenberg Trio plays 'Stella' on their album Gypsy Summer.
    Straight no Chaser is just a blues in F, so that'd be another very comfortable tune for someone coming from a Jazz Manouche background. I'll bet there's a gypsy jazz version of that tune somewhere though I can't think of one off the top of my head. Good luck.
