Attached is my attempt at mixing this piece.

I tried to keep the sound natural, but I wanted more from the guitar percussion. I boosted the bass and treble of the guitar, but didn't boost the middle range to make space for the saxophone.

I considered applying compression to the sax part, but it didn't sound good at all, so I left it natural without even fader automation. This being a fairly straightforward jazz recording, I wanted to keep it natural.

Likewise, I tried to pick a natural reverberation setting to warm up the sound.

I got rid of most of the inputs: one sax mic was much too dark for me; guitar direct input wasn't helpful at all with all the percussion, the far guitar mic didn't add anything...I went with a close sax mic and a close (stereo) guitar mic only. This approach also should reduce any comb filtering effects.

Let me know if you think any of my decisions are misguided, or if you hear anything amiss in my mix!

It was a well done recording and easy to work with.
