For fifty years the world - and three wives - believed that Billy Tipton, professional jazz musician, was a man. Writer Diane Wood Middlebrook lifts the lid on jazz's greatest cross-dresser in her appealing biography that covers the musician's early years in Oklahoma, the nights playing with Louis Armstrong's partner and his/her extraordinary relationships.
