Very nice! You have a very nice alto saxophone tone and excellent intonation! I really liked this piece and I only have a few suggestions.

Is there a main melody for this piece? I feel the first minute and a half could have really benefited from a simple melody to provide some direction for the listener. That same melody could also be used to provide some closure for the end of the piece as well.

This has a very nice slow swing feel, but the very "straight" piano run feels abrasive to the groove. This is subjective of course, but I would substitute something else for that run.

Also subjective, the lack of a little reverb for the sax really makes it feel disconnected from the rest of the piece. It's like I'm sitting in the back of a hall listening to the percussionist, pianist, and strings, and then the saxophonist is playing just a few feet away. Just a little reverb to balance what the rest of instruments have would really help.

Other than that, great job! I look forward to your future work.
