Hi, I was wondering do you have some recommendations for jazz guitar books with good theory and nice voicings, songs, CD examples, whatever, something you liked and you think it's worth of buying! :)

Definitely not a "guitar" book - but I've learned a ton from Mark Levine's "the Jazz Theory Book". Also no CD, but lots of recommended recordings and transcribed licks to illustrate what he's talking about ...

Frank Gambale Technique books I and II.
+1 for any Don Mock books...
Steve Kahn's Chord Khancepts and Pentatonic Kahncepts or something similar.

Lots of good play-a-long books at www.jazzbooks.com

For technique, there's not many better than TGPs own Jack Zucker's "Sheets of Sound".

I like this book very much, partially because it isn't guitar oriented.

If you are looking for an all in one book/cd, this is a good recommendation as it has actual tunes and covers comping and soloing. I believe some theory is in there too.
