A touch underexposed and you could have put him a little bit more centrally in the frame (look at where his back is versus where the saxophone is). I don't like the frame much, either.

its a nice use of the rule of thirds. i wouldnt ever center a subject in the middle (well i would, but not for this type of shot)

I like the composition, but a slight curves adjustment will make it great!
