From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eugene Sampson Pitt born November 6, 1937 in Brooklyn, New York, USA was the founding member of Jive Five.

He first formed a group with some schoolfriends in 1954 called the Genies, in which he was the lead singer. No recordings from this group.

In 1959 he, together with Jerome Hanna, Richard Harris, Norman Johnson, and Billy Prophet, formed The Jive Five.

In 1985, Eugene and The Jive Five were introduced to New York cable TV branding consultants Fred Seibert and Alan Goodman by his latest producer, Ambient Sound's Marty Pekar. Together they embarked on an almost ten-year relationship, creating and singing the a cappella signature sound of the American kids' television network Nickelodeon.

Terry Stewart, President & CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has called Pitt "the most underrated soul singer in America."
