Michael J. West is a music writer, historian, collector, and fanatic in Washington, D.C., where he also has a day job managing publications for an academic nonprofit. His music-nerd friends call him “the Anti-Taste,” since taste suggests disliking some forms of music-and he doesn't. He also writes for JazzTimes, Washington City Paper, the Village Voice, and Decider DC, among others. He has a wife, a condo, and two cats, one of whom is named for Thelonious Monk.
