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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.1/100, a mean average of 77.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

Five star jazz record. Essential live jazz with some of the best musicians of all time

I'm not a huge jazz fan, so this is my personal rating, not what I think the quality of it is.

Having said that I really enjoyed the live crowd interaction and slightly less conventional salt peanuts.

Five of the greatest jazz musicians who ever lived playing together... of course it will be a quality recording. The first track was the only weak entry, IMO, but the rest is predictably gorgeous, even for someone who isn't big on traditional bebop arrangements.

A nice jazz album, but it doesn't live up to its status, for me.

The Quintet is Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Charles Mingus and Max Roach. You can also buy a more complete version of the same concert called Charlie Parker - Complete Jazz At Massey Hall which has 14 tracks.
