Frankie started performing professionally while he was attending high school, during which time he was a featured soloist at local college jazz bands. After high school, Frankie continued his musical ambitions and later signed his first recording contract with Allied Artists Records.

The Story of Del Pasado al Presente

Most of the music on this CD has been performed by my Family for many years. My Grandfather played throughout Southern California beginning in the 1930's and passed down this great traditional music to his children; but if I had to pick the two people that inspired me the most, I'd point to my dad, Rudy Cendejas, and to his brother, Jimmy Cendejas

As I was growing up, I always felt the excitement at my family gatherings while the band that my dad and Uncle Jimmy organized was performing. I loved to watch my dad sing and play his drums. And man, there was no saxophone player I knew of that played with the feeling fun and excitement that Jimmy did.

One evening at a family party, Jimmy found out that I was learning how to play the trumpet and he asked me to come up onto the stage and play a song with him. I was up there the rest of the night and I still have fond, vivid memories of playing next to him and my dad. In my mind, I can still see Jimmy giving me the nod while he was playing, signifying it was my turn to "take one" (i.e. ad lib a trumpet solo). That nod was the first step to finding my love for my horn, and love for the performance of this music. That night changed my life.

I'd also like to acknowledge gratitude to my mother, who ignited the fire within me when she suggested that I create an Instrumental recording of Latin ballads led by solo trumpet. Thank you, mom, for your love and inspiration that has culminated in these recordings.

This CD is dedicated to those who know and love this very special music. Del Pasado al Presente is a tribute to my family and to others who have performed this music in the past, and now in the present.

"Wow, que gran talento. The entire CD is very refreshing, well performed and the selections are superb. It has beautiful arrangements and is very nice overall".
WDNA Radio Miami, Florida

"His style is very captivating. The way he often slides slowly from note to note is so languid and silky that is really mesmerizes and sounds quite a bit different from other trumpet players. His style captures a south of the border, hot nights and spicy love feeling".
