If you're working out an arrangement before hand and have your partner look it over prior of getting together, I don't see a problem of getting something done. However, from my experience, if you or he are introduced cold to an arrangement, it can become tiresome. I don't mean so much from a technical aspect, although I don't know the degree of difficulty of the music, but purely from the music itself. Sometimes, you have a particular feel in mind and your partner doesn't get right away, you're spending more time talking than playing. That said, I think, preparation would be beneficial.
