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)

Probably because I'm a jazz neophyte, but I prefer his 50s and early 60s work over what came later. Whatever you prefer, there's no questioning his genius.
One of the most influential Jazz artists of all time, and a great composer.
Genius of trumpet
Reviewing the King of Jazz is quite an honourable thing to do. Even though Jazz is not my favourite music genre, there is no denying the overall impact it had upon the world. Rock might have more variety and a much wider fanbase, but in order to become a great Jazz musician, you’ve got to put more effort into it and be quite talented. Miles Davis is the one who has the best-selling and most critically acclaimed Jazz record of All Time. He also has other quality stuff, ranging from older relaxing albums like “’Round About Midnight”, to newer, jazz fusion ones like “Bitches Brew” and “In a Silent Way”. His music is not for everyone, but if you’re really into this genre, then he might be the most essential artist.
Best albums; Kind of Blue and Sketches of Spain. Both beautiful.

A musical genius and one of the most influential artists of all time!
Miles Davis was a genius. He was extremely talented, he assembled some of the most vital bands in jazz, his use of mutes was exceptional, he was able to create an incredible amount of emotion with his playing style, and he discovered talent that would go on to become stars of their own. However, I think what elevates him to legendary status was his constantly evolving sound. He was a major player in almost every jazz movement that arose in his lifetime, and several of those movements were spurred by him. He adapted every style to his own means, and surrounded himself with talent that would perfectly match his ambitions for his new sounds. Cool jazz, hard bop, third stream, modal jazz, post-bop, fusion, jazz-funk, you name it, he played it, and he played it his way. No other jazz musician had such an expansive and ever-changing career, and no other jazz musician was to bring his own sound and soul to every era of the music.
One of the best Jazz artists to ever exist.
Best Albums: Agharta, Pangaea, Dark Magus, Bitches Brew.
