The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra (ALJO) kicks off its landmark 10th anniversary season with the program, “Andy & Jerry’s: A Tribute to the González Brothers.”  The event is at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14 and Saturday, Oct. 15, 2011, at Symphony Space2537 Broadway at 95th Street in New York. Tickets are $50/$40/$30 for members; $40/$32/$24 for students and seniors, and $15 for children.

The ALJO will pay tribute to Andy and Jerry González, founders of the pioneering, Bronx-born Fort Apache Band and arguably the most important siblings in Latin jazz. The orchestra will cast the brothers in a retrospective of their greatest moments and will premiere O’Farrill’s Ft. Apache Concerto.
