I actually like Mark Levine's Piano Book, but I started reading it after already having a BS in Music and studying jazz theory out of the Aebersold's. It was a tough read, but very rewarding in the end. It helped me tremendously in learning how to voice chords for jazz piano, but also gave me a heightened understanding of how the jazz combo operates. But honestly, it's not an easy read if you really strive to understand all that is presented.
