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 76.3/100, a mean average of 76.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

A nice collection of Fats Waller tunes. Mr. Armstrong delivers in his inimitable style. There are few real standouts on this record but it's hard to beat a master at his own game.

A step-down from the amazing W.C. Handy tribute of the year before. A solid collection of songs but only the final two captivate me, 'Black and Blue' with its darkness and 'Ain't Misbehavin' with its energy.

Fantastic recording! Why did I put off listening to it for so long? I don't think anyone could have done better by these marvellous songs. Black and Blue... wow!

An enjoyable album, with Louie singing some of Fats Waller's greatest tunes. Often upbeat, sometimes smooth and swinging. Unfortunately, he didn't do justice to Fats's best song "Ain't Misbehavin'"
