Maurice H. Unthank, Jr.
(1949 - 2008)

Maurice was the son of Maurice H. Unthank, Sr. and Ruth Browner.
He was born on July 17, 1949.
He has one brother, Michael K. Unthank.

Maurice apparently attended college at the Hampton Institute in Virginia where he was part of a musical group
called Quiet Fire along with Philippe Fields and Oscar Jai-Tee. He was later part of a group known as The Jive Five
(aka Eugene Pitt & The Jive Five). He is associated with several musical arrangements available on CD's and was known
as a talented piano player. He was residing in Brooklyn, New York when he passed away on July 21, 2008.

This is the group Quiet Fire but I do not know which one is Maurice.

I found this on YouTube - it is the group Jive Five

According to the person who posted this on YouTube, the group consists of Eugene Pitt,
Artie Loria, Daniel Loria, Bea Best, Harold Gilly, Maurice Unthank.
I do not know which is Maurice, so please help identify him.
