Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool is one of the compilation albums from the Red Hot project. This fifth entry in the Red Hot AIDS Benefit Series was heralded as the "Album of the Year" by Time Magazine upon its release in 1994 by GRP Records.

The double disc — the second compact disc was included as a "Bonus" — features collaborations between renowned jazz performers and contemporary hip hop artists; it was also one of the first such efforts to examine the impact of AIDS within the African American community. At the time the recording was released, a documentary film was broadcast on PBS, which explored the consequences brought on by AIDS among minority, ethnic groups. The televised documentary was also released on home video.

The title refers to a 1961 jazz standard by Oliver Nelson, which is also covered on this album.
