Described by The Guardian as “a phenomenal, dynamic, imaginative. An outstanding pianist.” Abel Marcel has been praised by the Music Republic Magazine as “equally at home with the european and american jazz traditions as he is with his own cuban roots”. Abel’s musical language stood and stands for continued fresh and thrilling exploration on steady ground of and deep rootedness in the rhythmic traditions of the Caribbean Latin America and Africa, the AfroCuban folklore , and the lineage of composer-pianists from Bach, Chopin, Scriabin Manuel Saumell and Ignacio Cervantes to Ruben Gonzales, Bebo Valdes, Carlos Malcoms, Chucho Valdes and Tania Leon.

An outstanding pianist.”
