That's straight up Jaco bridge pickup tone. You can get pretty much that exact tone by soloing your bridge pickup and playing above it. EQ it to taste, but if your bass is active, roll off some of the highs (but not too too much). The bridge pickup is 9/10ths of that tone; EQ it to how you want it afterwards.

Also, on your amp, don't go crazy cutting or boosting. Your settings should be +/- 4.5dB tops.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

no-one ever will sound like wooten, but you could always try to come close... it's also his bass and picking technique...
