Heya, I was curious about the what jazz songs are written in the wheel of fourths, are there any sources that shows all the jazz songs in this progression?

For example:

Fly me to the moon (6-2-5-etc)
Autumn leaves (2-5-1-etc)

I've heard this is one of the most popular progressions. Do you guys know any more jazz songs, written with these progressions?

The Fly Me To The Moon progression and its many variations are very common in pop music.
A little less so in jazz though.

Others that are kind of similar:

All The Things You Are
Don't Explain (bridge)
Beautiful Love

And some Brazilian songs (is that jazz? who knows...)
Manha Do Carnaval
Voce Abusou (verse)

That's all I can think of for now.

This page
http://www.angelfire.com/fl4/moneychords/circleprogressions.html

has a good list, though not only jazz and not only about this specific chord progression.

Really, it's hard to find jazz tunes that don't, at least in part, use the ii-V-I progression. After 1960, folks starting writing tunes that didn't use that, but before that, they all did. Just crack open the Real Book and you'll likely find ii-V-Is.

If you want tunes that use the I-VI-ii-V, that's Rhythm Changes. In additional to I Got Rhythm, look up the Wikipedia article on Contrafacts and find all the tunes based on Rhythm Changes.

What are some tunes that use ii-V-I alot? Try How High the Moon and All the Things You Are.

ii-V-I yes very common indeed, but I thought the OP was referring to the 8 bar progression used in Fly Me To The Moon and it's many subtle variations
