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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.1/100, a mean average of 77.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Ella has some incredibly long albums, the "songbook" series are typically 2+ hours, with the Ellington songbook being one of the longest. That said, while some of the other shorter ones get old after a bit (Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart), this one is fantastic the whole way through. If you don't have 3 hours to spare to listen to this album in full, I'd recommend first checking out the final 3 songs: "Chelsea Bridge" through "The E & D Blues". Those are highlights of the album for me, give a sample of what you'll find on the rest of the album, and perfectly close the whole set.
