I was just coming to post about that!

I can't stress strongly enough how important this course is. There just aren't any courses on contemporary harmony and the most recent book was published in 1961. The course is free, but for $5.00 you get pdf files of all the examples.

I love his "feet on the ground", music "as actually played and heard" approach rather than approaches prioritizing music as written and read, conceived or "ciphered (think Dan Brown)".

Ah well I backed it with the pdf files anyway, the price is ridiculously low for that value. I'm sure I'll be learning a ton from it!
