I just passed 10K subscribers on YouTube so I'm gonna release this to the channel but it would be wise to ask for some comments from folks with better ears than me first to make sure there aren't any glaring mix errors (ignore the performance errors. i don't fix those lol)
Kick is too strong for me. The click in it especially. It is just to up front of everything. I might see if swapping the bass for the kick in terms of which is in front of the other might work better. Have to play with that one though. I think just lowering the kick in general while taming the click and even the snare a bit in places.
Id cool the jets of the sax around 2k-2.5k as well a touch.
All I got for now until Im back in the studio to listen. Sounds like a live venue mix? Sounds good for that!
Replace the drums.Too mechanical, better drums sounds, a little reverb. lower overall level. This ain't Rap. Bring up the bass. lower the sax, bring up the piano a bit on the left side. Just some basic balancing. Make everything sound in one cohesive space. Good tune.

I can't imagine recording myself with a band ..live. Way too many hats for me. Much respect - Kudos.
Anyway, picking nits.. I find the bass to be bloated, maybe too much in the 200-250 Hz range - generally eating up a lot of frequency range- and making me work too hard to hear the fundamental in places.
Cool song. The bass is very tubby sounding and tends to overshadow the mix. i don't find the drums to be terribly overwhelming, but when the kick and bass hit it seems to make the rest of the song disappear!
