Jaco plays the first four lines over and over and improvises a little while the sax has
his solo. After a while he plays the intro lick, then switches to a funk/r&b type riff.
It all pretty juch improvised, so ill let you do that too. For a reference of this kind
of riff, search Barbary Coast. Don't forget he switches to the key of E for the funk
section.


After this he switches back to the main riff for awhile, and awhile after that, he goes
to another funk section, but this time in Bb. The song fades awhile into this section.

Almost there ...
