Theory Books
Buried somewhere on BandAMP Entheon Recommended two books:

The Jazz Theory Book
by Mark Levine
ISBN: 1883217040

A Chromatic Approach to Jazz Harmony and Melody
by Dave Leibman
ISBN: 3892210306

Already owning the first, and trusting his judgement, I am buying the second.  I would also like to make a qualified recommendation for the book:

Harmony for a New Millennium
by Randy Sandke
ISBN: 6340-4426-5

I only recommend it to people who are interested in dissonant chords, and are already familiar with diatonic and altered chords.  What Sandke offers is a new naming system that I hope catches on.  The book lays out and names all the 4-note chords in a way that makes them easy to understand and use.  The second half of the book is a novel composition method that is not for everybody but I believe the first half will enhance communication between musicians who use it.
