Abel Boquera (Vilanova i la Geltrú 1974) is an organist and keyboard player based in Barcelona.
He started learning the piano by ear at a very young age and got his first lessons in local music schools. He joined local rock bands and his first organ "hero" was Deep Purple's organist, John Lord. Later on, he was introduced to other styles like soul, funk, and jazz and got hooked on Jimmy Smith's records and the sound of Van Gelder's recordings. He continued to study piano jazz and music theory and played frequently in jam sessions and started his professional career.
He soon performed as an organist on the Barcelona local jazz scene, mainly in demand by guitarists such as Dave Wilkinson, Johnny Branchizio, Dave Mitchell, Andreu Zaragoza, or Gustav Lundgren.
During his career, has performed and/or recorded with international artists such as Gisele Jackson (Ray Charles, Donna Summer), Ray Gelato, Prince Philip Mitchell, and Seamus Blake, among others.
