Egwu-Anwu (Sun Song) is an out-of-print live recording by Joseph Jarman and Famoudou Don Moye. The recording is of a live performance recorded in Woodstock, NY, on January 8, 1978, which was released by India Navigation  (catalogue # IN 1033).





Half of the Art Ensemble make a special live appearance for this wonderful late 70s set – recorded in concert in Woodstock, with a loose, open feel that's as much New York loft jazz as it is Chicago AACM. Jarman plays a variety of reeds – including tenor, alto, and sopranino sax, as well as flute and bass clarinet, and a bit of vibes – and the main percussion is handled by Moye on drums, marimba, and other instruments. The album features a long suite of tracks entitled "The Heavens / And The Earth / The Earth / And The Heavens" – building nicely throughout the extended performance!
