I just read your review and I had a good laugh. I look forward to your review of Sloniminsky's Thesaurus of Melodic Patterns
. Some of the comments are pretty funny too.
I think OP already has Mark Levine's book, unless he is referring to a different Jazz Theory Book
. Mark Levine's book is a fantastic resource, it is honestly the best recommendation I can give you.
