In fact this is so typical of jazz tunes and this tune in particular it has it's own term, "Rhythm Changes" (as in the chord "changes" in "I Got Rhythm"). If you are familiar with the tune, start singing at the bridge.
Which brings the tune back to the home key of B-flat! "I Got Rhythm ..." This is a perfect slice of the circle of fifths:
In the video example I put this progression in C major instead of B-flat major for ease of explanation.
For another example, in the song "Autumn Leaves" the entire first verse is part of the circle of fifths.
There are many other songs that use the circle of fifths for part of the chord progression.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
