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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.7/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.6.

there is a doubt if this album belongs to this year, there is a 1951 release
A fine record by a jazz genius.
Holy drums Batman at the end of Skin Deep! A Train is just a classic and solid scat singing. Dug the Mooche. The rest is pretty standard. Surprised this isn't rated higher with other big Jazz albums of the 50s.
I've yet to hear a mediocre recording from The Duke, but this one is something special. It's more energetic and adventurous than his work with the Blanton-Webster band. There are a lot of great tracks, but I especially enjoyed "A Tone Parallel to Harlem."
The first two tracks (Skin Deep and The Mooche) are perfect! Then it starts to be just a normal, nice to listen to jazz. Bus still, a really nice album.
