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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 76.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

'The Kid From Red Bank' is an album highlight here! There's a few spots of greatness, but it's balanced out by some fairly mundane tracks as well. Overall a fairly decent album.
Basie's best record is a classic for Big Band Jazz. Arranged by Neal Hefti and featuring some great tenor sax work by Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis. Easy to see how this recording rejuvenated Basie's career.
Best Tracks: Midnite, Fantail, Spanky, Duet, Teddy the Toad.
Great big band jazz. One of the best.
Energetic big band jazz. Enjoyable but I do find this genre a little bombastic and less interesting than others. Other's clearly love it though and kudos merrily un pc album art!
Basie at his best!
