Zaxariades -- formerly known as Bruce Scott -- has enjoyed several incarnations in the entertainment industry. As a boy in New York City, he sang at the Metropolitan Opera. As a teenager he appeared in numerous films, including "Hang 'em High," with Clint Eastwood. As a young man he appeared on Broadway in many hit shows, including "The Lion in Winter" with Christopher Walken and "Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?" with Al Pacino. As an adult, he starred in the cult film classic "Flesh Gordon." And as a mature musical artist he toured the world for six years with the legendary master of vocalese, Jon Hendricks. Indeed, Zaxariades is the only other singer beside the late Dave Lambert to have performed onstage (at New York's Blue Note Jazz Club, in 1986) with Hendricks and Annie Ross.
An electrifying live performer, Zaxariades sings in five languages, plays six instruments, and is generally recognized at the reigning master of bebop vocalizing.
His album, "Mr. Z," features four original compositions, as well as "Tell Me the Truth," a Jon Hendricks gem previously recorded only once before -- by the composer.
