According to Starship's link, the Trumbauer orchestra version was the first recording. That was 10th April 1928. The details are available here: OKeh matrix W400603. Borneo / Frankie Trumbauer’s Orchestra.

You can download copies of that recording from archive.org: Borneo - Trumbauer Orchestra

There's some information of the recording session in Berret: Louis Armstrong and Paul Whiteman: Two Kings of Jazz (10 of the 11 sidemen were Whiteman regulars) extract at google books pp86-87. It was a Bill Challis arrangement.

I haven't checked to see what other recordings were made at the time.
