This song reminds me of the later works by Kit Watkins.
In songs like this he used a digital sax.
You might try an alto from stock.

;JOOP!

Mike,

I agree with ;JOOP! about the sax.

I felt that the flute was overblown too many times (flute was my very first instrument).  While the articulations were good, I would reduce the number of overblown notes.  It can get a little piercing and disrupt the smooth flow of the piece. (My 2 cents)

The rest I thought was very good and I enjoyed listening.

Thank you for sharing.

Very nice work Mike, love that constant bass line, and I also agree that there is more than funk working in this music.
A sort of oriental blend is what I also hear.
The flute did not bother me, but the choir if thats what I hear, is dominant and stands out with lots of presence, not feeling that part.

Nontheless, this makes me want to get back to creating music again. lol
