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)

Solid playing throughout. Songs 3-6 are especially strong performances. Miles is definitely "in the zone." 9.5/10!
Classic Davis record
This is no very unorthodox album and not very revolutionary. The band is top-notch as usual, with all the great jazz names being in fine form. YOu cannot fail with these guys!
Miles Davis – trumpet
John Coltrane – tenor saxophone
Red Garland – piano
Paul Chambers – double bass
Philly Joe Jones – drumset:
Imagine being so incredible that this is in the conversation for Miles' third best album of the decade.
Excellent jazz playing throughout, and incredibly melodic. Love it.
A tremendous album with truly amazing playing
One of the best of early Miles. Good compositions well delivered, especially by the back line.
While solid Jazz, I didn't get an eargasm from it.
'Round About Midnight was the first album by Davis on Columbia, where he would stay for 30 years. It features saxophonist John Coltrane, who had not yet become an icon. The interplay between the two here is great, with Davis' melodies being answered by Coltrane's energetic solos. The rhythm section of Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones never wavers.
A true jazz classic. One of many Davis albums that are necessary for anyone who's a fan. A beautiful piece of work.
