Um... you do know that the saxophone parts (Getz) were wholly improvised, right? As in not one note of the tenor part will appear on the score (unless someone has since transcribed it).

That said, I'm sure the string arrangments are floating around somewhere for purchase.

They are likely not for sale. I transcribed them many years ago and then got copies from Eddie Sauter, but those are long gone. You could transcribe the parts. It shouldn't be that tough.
I seem to remember Greg Yasinitsky at Washington State playing this years ago. Here's his contact info.

If you felt like getting creative and saving some money (maybe) the Apple GarageBand Orchestra Jam-Pack has some nice string ensemble sample loops that can be strung together and transposed in an infinite variety of ways.
---good luck
