Tootie Heath Vs Art Hirahara

Art Hirahara, a Bellarmine grad, who plays with Stacey who acted in a Shakespeare movie, singing Marlowe lyrics, March 13, 2020 — and that’s Andy Heller in the background

Here are two photographs.

One is pianist Art Hirahara, in Palo Alto, on March 13, 2020; photo by Mark Weiss;

Two is Tootie Heath, or his brother, perhaps in Philadelphia, or maybe Denmark, known unknown photographer, courtesy Mark Christman of Ars Nova.

There’s more to the story, I’m sure. If I picture is worth one thousand words, I owe you 1,916.
