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 is what I thought all jazz sounded like when I was younger. Not in a bad way. In a great way (also not In a Silent Way). Fast, winding, complex, crazy talented musicians. Yeah, it can be a bit similar to other jazz, but this is what other jazz acts at the time (and now) are aspiring for.
Pretty cool album, feels like an important step in Miles' career. Such amazing personnel too, John Coltrane... Cannonball Adderly.
An album I believe is better and more important than Kind of Blue (*takes shelter from ensuing Jazz snobs*)
Still getting my feet wet with jazz albums, so this is an inexperienced question, but why is this not as well regarded as Davis' other albums? You can definitely tell it served as a canvas for Kind of Blue and that's regarded as the best jazz album of all time.
Ultra cool be bop album featuring heavy hitters; Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. Sounds like everyone is having a blast.
