Artie Shaw created another smaller group within his band. He named it the Gramercy Five after his home telephone exchange. The original Gramercy Five made eight records in 1940, giving up his band in early 1941. But after Artie finished his service in the Navy, he revived the Gramercy Five in name, at least, in 1944. The new Gramercy Five recorded for the first time in January 1945. The Gramercy Five's biggest hit was "Summit Ridge Drive". A CD of The Complete Gramercy Five sessions was released in 1990.
