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 artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist is rated in the top 5% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 8.6.

One of the most long lasting, varied, and capable composer/musicians in music history. From hard bop to soul jazz to funk and electronic, he could, and did, do it all, usually at a very high level. If you're interested, don't just pick one album and give up if you don't take to it, but rather grab a different album from a different era as it's likely to be a whole different ball of wax.
