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 79.7/100, a mean average of 79.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.5.

Ahhh...Ellington's signature album that sustained and revitalized his career. From the smoking tenor of Paul Gonsalves, to the blonde in black, to the Time magazine cover that would follow weeks later...what a great story!

My pick for Best Album of 1956.

Best tracks: Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue, Festival Junction, Jeep's Blues.

Originally one of the best non-live records ever made. Ellington and his producer were so displeased with the sound quality taken from their concert that Ellington arranged to have his orchestra show up in studio and record the album and over dub the sound of the audience. Only years later with cd re-issue was a version of his actual playing on front of an audience released. Still a great set.

Coincidence? I think NOT!
