Good news, scaruffi's ratings are more and more jazz, thanks to the help of Austin Krentz, who was volunteered to rate the jazz albums for scaruffi site.
https://www.scaruffi.com/service/krentz.html

The link to the page above, i think it's not complete, cos on the Abbey Lincoln page, for example, albums are rated while this artist doesn't appears on the page.

”He is checking piero's lists and piero's reviews and basically guessing what rating piero would give to each album.”

That’s a new one... Who is for and who is against the use of these ratings?

"Tutu (february 1986), a collection of short pieces, was a collaboration with producer Marcus Miller (who played and overdubbed several instruments himself)"

This is all Scaruffi says about the album, and this is the kind of blip that Krentz often is basing his rating on (in this case 5/10). For me this seems very arbitrary, so I am arguing against an inclusion.

Too bad, as if there were no arbitrary lists on AM!
