In addition to benefitting from a better mic, it might be better to be a little further away to capture some room ambience.

Some rooms sound good, others not so so be careful . And/or some added reverberation/ambience will make the recording sound more natural.

When you hear a saxophone played in a room, there is always some ambience , the sound bouncing off of walls etc. With the mic very close, you get none of this so when recording we either add reverb or use a mic further away. Or sometimes two mics, one for the close up sound and one much further away to capture the room ambience.
