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 is rated in the top 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.1/100, a mean average of 77.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

Some of my favorite piano playing. Bill Evans manages to make complex harmony sound like an easygoing pop melody.

Recorded the same night as, waltz for Debby. It's lovely stuff, but haunted by the fact that bass player Scott Lefaro would sadly pass away within two weeks of this show.

Fantastic old-school jazz album. Loved it the very first time I heard it. Pity music isn't made like this any more.

God on earth. Debussy, Ravel, Ellington..all is in Evans and Evans is in heaven. The best pianist of all time and not only in jazz. Gould, Rubinstein, Pollini, Horowitz..... yes, of course, but Bill Evans forever.

N.- Evans, LaFaro and Motian are THE TRIO.
