Paul Bley is the second album by Canadian jazz pianist Paul Bley featuring tracks recorded in 1954 and released on the EmArcy label.

“At this stage of his career, he’s a very orthodox bopper, aware of the blues but certainly not restricted by them, possibly exploring aspects of Tristano’s evolution as well, and certainly listening to classical pianists for technique and harmonic ideas” (The Penguin Guide to Jazz).
