Four Or Five Times, King Oliver’s Dixie Syncopators (1928).
Had trouble identifying this song (untitled file name) and King Oliver apparently recorded more than one version (perhaps with his Creole Jazz Band). Others recorded this song about the same time including McKinney’s Cotton Pickers, Jimmie Noone’s Apex Club Orchestra and Ben Pollack & The Whoopee Makers.
