Just finished arranging Jaco's sweet fretless bass solo for SATB sax quartet today. An mp3 of the chart is attached below.

The exported Finale audio is terrible, but it should give a good idea as to what it should sound like.

The rubato parts (intro & end) are kind of difficult to play without solid conducting, so one should have a good lead player or a separate conductor for this chart.

The repetitive part at 1:21 actually starts very soft, then gradually crescendos to forte at 1:33. It's styled as a repeated section, so Finale doesn't play it like I wanted it to.

I also added an optional soprano solo over that section... just to give the player something to do if they feel like it. It makes that section more interesting than just hearing that figure over and over again.

Feedback is always welcome!

Nice arrangement - you captured all the harmonies and conveyed the mood of the piece well!
