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 86.5/100, a mean average of 85.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

You can feel the heat through the arrangements and the notes. It's really heavy for a jazz album, as it composed by the angry man of jazz himself. a MASTERPIECE no matter what genre you're into. 100/100

This does for me what the two other sacred beasts - A Love Supreme and Kind of Blue - don't.

One of my favorite jazz records of the sixtees, and certainly one of Mingus's best! My favorite is 'Duet Solo Dancers'. An absolute masterpiece!

A turning point in jazz. Probably the loudest album of 1963.

Have only heard "Mingus Ah Um" before and this is clearly a step forward with a strong avantgarde sense.
That can be mostly seen in the arrangements with a familiar approach to his classical/contemporary counterparts.
In terms of individuality, the pianist is an absolute delight to hear and the drummer is also outstanding, serves but also amazes.
This record is what happens when a great musician lets its creativity run free.
