Having a classical background he developed also as a lyrical saxophonist and played on several other, more melodic based, projects such a the record 'Springtime in Amsterdam' from the late singer-songwriter Wally Tax. The titelsong became a hit in the Netherlands. For his rhythmical approach he was thankful to play in the Kaseko-based group Karishma, which scored a number one hit in Surinam.
After founding his own company Ambar-Events and his Amsterdam Saxophone Academy, Frank returned to Jazz and finally wanted to record some of his own material that he has been carrying around from the early age of twelve. The result of the renewed writing proces, in which he asked saxophonist Tineke Postma to be his coach, is the vibrant and playful album 'Jazz Painter' that became his signature as a composer and saxophonist.
