In Jazz it appears that many musicians (most ?) will use the circle of 5ths as a circle of 4ths. I have no idea why this is the case because it’s very clear how to use the circle in both directions.
Clockwise from C to G to D to A etc … with a perfect 5th in between every interval. (P5)
Looking at the circle of 5ths counter-clockwise is (of course) going down on the keys from C to F to Bb to Eb etc… with, again, a perfect 5th in between.
In other words it’s always a circle of 5ths, in both directions.
Visual aid: visualise the clock cut open at 6 and laid flat on the table, comparing that to a piano keyboard it’s clear that the one direction uses ascending notes and the other descending ones.
