|Avg. album rating
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 72.9/100, a mean average of 71.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.4.

An American Classic.
A banda é monstruosa!!! Excelente!
One of the most important jazz works of all time, just for Gene Krupa's work alone.
Sing Sing Sing (With A Swing)
Swingtime In The Rockies
I Got Rhythm
The Man I Love
Classic recording of a classic band.
Who knew the clarinet could be so cool.
feels like the fiftees
This is the concert that launched the big band era. After it popularized jazz, traditional "white" American music became increasingly blended with African American music with every passing decade. But it wasn't just an important event, it was also a breathtaking concert.
With Benny Goodman's (mostly white) band serving as the jazz equivalent of Elvis, this recording grabs you from the first phrase and never lets up until the concert is over. His accomplishment is vastly underappreciated in a rock/pop/hip-hop culture that seems to think that music began in the mid-50s. If you're looking to develop an appreciation for jazz/swing music, this is a great place to start -- after all, this is where much of America started back in the 1930s.
A decent jazz album.
