RECORDS : Nelson, Earth etc., Bee Gees The Boston Evening Globe Friday, July 18, 1975 JAZZ Jazz composers have yet to bend the electronic instruments to their own artistic purposes. But, tney're hot on the trail Herbie Hancock, Michael Ur-feaniak, George Russell, Stevie Wonder, among others with their use of synthesizers, clavinets, echo players, tapes, feedback techniques, mixers, etc. Now, Oliver Nelson has an album, ."Skull Session" (Flying Dutchman) which represents his effort to incorporate electronics into big band arrangements. He's helped by a number of top musicians but only the title song uses electronic instrument effectively. The other cuts are revamps of old mate Vial, good stuff, funky, but hardly revolutionary. On the other hand. Woody Herman's "Children of Lima" (Fantasy) stays with traditional charts by Alan Broadbent and works up its own electricity, generated by the hardest-driving band Herman has put together in 20 years. The band is helped by the Houston Symphony on one side. It's a pleasure. Ray Murphy RHYTHM & BLUES "Shining Star," the hit single of Earth, Wind & Fire's new album "That's The Way of' the World", the score of the new movie, shows off the fab- Ustinov in 'Dinosaur' ulous range and coordination of this nine-man vocal ensemble and instrumental choir. The title cut comes into your consciousness the way a cool air-conditioned breeze rushes over your face when you've been out in the sticky heat. Sometimes the cool goes too dry for our taste, but then, that's a form of sophistication. Still, these guys are great, and this is a sound you shouldn't miss. Stephen Curwond .. ROCK Side two of the new Bee Gees album, "Main Course" (RSO Records) is about as appetizing as a week-old plate of chicken salad but don't let that discourage you from sitting down at your (turn)table and digesting the five tasty tidbits on side one. "Nights On Broadway" is the spunkiest thing the Gibb brothers have ever tried and by now you've surely heard the finger-poppin' "Jive Talkin' " on your favorite AM station. I have a feeling that Arif Mardin's deft production work accounts for the sparkling sound here but let's give credit where credit's due. These chaps haven't survived all these yars on hype alone. What I'd like to know about this effort, though, is why side two falls so far short of side one.

JJ lessly as a back-J bone-of-the-Em-pire nanny and Peter Ustinov overacting scandalously in taped-back Chinese drag are enough to drive any dinosaur off the screen and into extinction. ; The skeletal Mr. Bones of the Mesozoic Age is no match for this pair of larking actors who are so diverting they keep adult viewers from attacks of the squirms at Walt Disney's 'latest, "One of Our Dinosaurs Is Missing." The kids at the first screeening at the downtown Savoy yesterday morning were noisily delighted when the giant dinosaur skeleton went loping (via truck) through the fog and scared the bloomin' daylights out of the pop-eyed Londoners. If the youngsters are too young for sharks, this long-ago beast is harmless, but watch out for those Chinese villains. Well, even those bad guys really aren't so tough. Miss Hayes and her pack of proper nannies give them what-for with their purses and umbrellas. , The new movie, which is also playing in theaters in Framingham, Braintree, Peabody, Burlington . and Hanover, makes a first-rate summer entertainment for the kids. For grown-ups, aside from the sparkling star turns, it is routine, cutesy-pie Disney. It is paired with the re-run of the Disney cartoon feature, "Cinderella." The plot, such as it is, concerns an English lord who returns to London with a top secret formula coveted by a Chinese war lord. The time is the 1920s. The Chinese chase him to a museum where he secretes the formula for whatever it is, in a dinosaur skeleton. Miss Hayes enterg the plot as a former nanny to the now-grown lord and she rounds up the London ladies to retrieve the formula for King and Country. ? Ustinov plays the Chinese honcho with taped eyes, a wonderful accent 'and lots of throaty Asiatic grunts. Chases, sight-gags, pratfalls and kids the usual Disney bag are really what the picture is Madhouse tickets for barter To mark the 200th performance of The Madhouse Co. of London's wild stunt how, Sunday, Aug. 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Charles Playhouse Cabaret, the four British actors are asking that patrons bring anything British to the box office in exchange for a free ticket Pound notes, crumpets, English toffee, British records and photographs of the Royal family are all in the running. The offer is repeated Aug. 10. about. And the dinosaur is rather sweet and doesn't ear anyone. : CARNIVAL I i NOW THRU SATURDAY f SCITUATE HARBOR Finworks Frl. ft Sit.
