Red Hot + Rhapsody: The Gershwin Groove is a compilation album produced by Paul Heck of the Red Hot Organization (RHO) to celebrate the birthday of George Gershwin. This compilation is the twelfth entry from the international organization's Red Hot Benefit Series. As with other compilations toward the series, this release serves as a fundraising tool for the RHO's AIDS awareness efforts.

Red Hot, Verve, the artists, and producers are donating all of their royalties to AIDS education and relief worldwide. Track 2 contains a sample of "It Ain't Necessarily So" performed by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. Track 12 contains elements of "Peter Sellers Sings Gershwin" performed by Peter Sellers. Issued in a standard jewel case with a 28-page booklet. Total playing time 74:09.

Another year, another Red Hot project of unlikely musical bedfellows, this time paying tribute in their divergent ways to George Gershwin in the year of his centennial. All kinds of styles are tossed about, from a full symphony orchestra to the latest hip-hop and retro-electronic techniques. The tracks that work the best are those that seem to use Gershwin simply as a point of departure for their own agendas: to cite a few, Smoke City's odd combination of electronica and Brazilian rhythm on "They Can't Take That Away from Me," Michael Franti's interpolated ghetto raps. Though backloading the CD with sustained ballads drains much of its energy, the album is never less than absorbing. Yet there is little fusion of eras and attitudes, nor a sense of passing the torch as there is on the thrilling Red Hot + Rio package.

Silencio Muerte: Red Hot + Latin. Onda Sonora: Red Hot + Lisbon. Red Hot + Rhapsody: The Gershwin Groove. Red Hot + Riot: The Music and Spirit of Fela Kuti.

Red, Hot and Rhapsody sounds like something to be played at a funeral. I suppose, if it was over 100 degrees outside, and I was drinking serious adult beverages, this would be appropriate to play. One person found this helpful.
