On the same subject, does that book cover how to arrange for jazz music? I've been trying to make a band with jazz influence, but find myself hitting some roadblocks in the composition stage. If not, does anyone know a good book which covers that, or is it more of a trial and error thing?

Absoulutely, it has an enitre chapter on Composition that seems pretty well written at first glance. I'll have to look through that chapter, but the rest of the book is awesome.

The Mark Levine book is the end-all jazz theory book pretty much, I've used it a lot

I like the attitude it looks at jazz theory with and it gets things done in good sequence, although not the sequence I learned things in originally (but that was classical theory)
