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 13% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.4/100, a mean average of 74.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

What an amazing line-up, including Jaco Pastorious on Bass and Pat Metheny on Lead. One of the best live albums out there.

Don't try this one unless you already like her late 70's and early 80's stuff. This pulls from Hejira, Mingus, and The Hissing of Summer Lawns. The versions of Hejira are what make this recording. Much more sad and intimate than the slightly overproduced studio equivalents.
