I make heavy use of SQL Server from Jython using Microsoft's JDBC driver. This works great if it is
an option for you.
Otherwise if your client is on Windows take a look at adodbapi. I have just played around with this
enough to see that it will connect to SQL Server so I can't vouch for the quality but at least it
claims to be ready for production use.
eGenix sells an ODBC adapter:
