“Groove Collective's identity lies not in one fixed style but in its capable hospitality to whatever might keep hips swaying.”
—Jon Pareles, The New York Times
“He could be breathy and insinuating on a ballad, brawny and extroverted in an uptempo.”
—Jon Pareles, The New York Times on Jay Rodriguez
“A landmark album that brilliantly harnesses the fire of rap and the cool of jazz, transcending genres and generations.”
—TIME Magazine on Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool

Acclaimed saxophonist Jay Rodriguez joins Grammy-nominated jazz legends Groove Collective and special guests to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the touchstone album and documentary, Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool. Named 1994’s record of the year by TIME Magazine, the album, along with an accompanying film, was a watershed work in exploring the impact of AIDS on the African-American community, bringing together jazz greats like Herbie Hancock and Donald Byrd with hip-hop artists like The Roots and The Pharcyde. This special, two-night celebration revisits a landmark piece of cultural history with many of the musicians who made it immortal.
