Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.1/100, a mean average of 73.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

Jimmy's most popular album and understandably so as it's really a fun listen throughout.

great groovy blues-based jazz

and to address Spinout below, it was recorded in 1960 but wasn't released until 1963

Jimmy Smith's most popular album and often considered his best, but too much of Stanley Turrentine's tenor and not nearly enough organ for my taste. I recommend "House Party" over this if you like straight-ahead jazz, and if you want to hear Smith stretching out on the organ, check out "Groovin' at Small's Paradise."

Excellent jazz record featuring, of all things, the organ as the featured instrument. But the saxophonist is no slouch either.
