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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.4/100, a mean average of 77.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

What can you say about these two guys, masters of their art and instruments? The album is very good , just because of these men.

This is just straight bebop by two of its greatest practitioners. The instrumental performances can't be beat, though the overly simplistic arrangements leave it behind many other jazz classics in my mind.
