      Try "Give Me Your Telephone Number/Higginbotham Blues by J.C. Higginbotham &
      His Six Hicks (5 February 1930). This is described in Clayton & Gammond's 14
      Miles On A Clear Night as "the only jazz session actually recorded inside a
      double bass".

      For later stuff he can be well heard on some of the King Jazz sessions and
      on Emmett Berry's 1956 "Swingin' The Berries" set (French Columbia).
