Whyte led the Chocolates Beau Brummels in the ‘20s and ‘30s, an effective territory band located in Cincinnati that included in various occasions such respected music artists while trumpeters Sy Oliver and Roy Eldridge, trombonist Vic Dickenson, and tenor saxophonist Al Sears. Whyte’s profession started in earnest while going to Wilberforce University or college in Ohio, where he organized and performed banjo for the music group of fellow college student Horace Henderson. He started leading his personal groups in the first ‘20s; he created the Chocolates Beau Brummels later on in the 10 years. The band documented fewer than twelve edges, all in the Richmond, Indiana studios from the Gennett, Supertone, and Champ brands in 1929. A number of the information were originally released under the titles Eddie Walker and His Music group, and Smoke cigarettes Jackson and His Crimson Onions. The band’s whole recorded output could be heard around the compilation Richmond Rarities 1927-31 (Jazz Oracle Information).
