From Baristanet:

The 50th anniversary of the passing of Eric Dolphy, an American Jazz multi-instrumentalists whose legacy has hugely influential other jazz musicians, as well as musicians in other genres, such as Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, became a rallying point among the community members, who formed Seed Artist’s Board. They put together a major Dolphy celebration and the launch of the Freedom of Sound series as its coming-out party and the organization’s first step towards a major contribution to the arts, arts education, and a more engaged community.
