Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool 1994 Documentary [Full Length]

Image

Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool was hailed as Time Magazine’s 1994 Album of the Year and was one of the first projects to explore the impact of AIDS upon the African American community.   At the time the recording was released, a documentary film was broadcast on PBS and released on VHS home video. To date,  Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool has never been released on DVD.  The documentary explores the consequences brought on by AIDS and features the live innovative collaborations between renowned jazz performers and contemporary hip hop/acid jazz artists that are heard on the album.  If you’ve never seen this documentary it’s a must watch.  Below is the documentary in it’s entirety.  We haven’t seen a documentary with this much social impact combined with innovative jazz/hip hop collaborations since the release of  Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool.  Some of the collaborations include Donald Byrd, Guru and Ronny Jordan; Mc Solaar and Ron Carter; Me’Shell NdegéOcello and Herbie Hancock; The Roots and Roy Ayers; Digable Planets and Lester Bowie plus many more.
