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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.4/100, a mean average of 83.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

A 1968 recording of Art Blakey and his ensemble of that era - this rare album finally saw the light of day with a Laserlight Records release in 1997. Blakey has lost nothing of his spark and sass, and his band members solo well.

He really is the driving force of this record. Even when he is just keeping time. He is just great a that!
The rest of the musicians are top players on peak form.
So the album sounds great and makes you move with loads of attack and punch.
Clearly musicians trying the push the boundaries of the standardized jazz from within.

Effervescent, breezy jazz and a core album for those wanting to get into the genre. A great place to start.

This album was such a great addition to add to my jazz collection, but I don't understand some of the low ratings it's gotten.
