Default Common Jazz Chord Progressions

https://youtu.be/_n7gscYo0ek?t=362 (Pinpointed Link)


Am7 - D7 - Dm7 - G7 - Gm7 - C7 - Cm7 - F7

I don't understand the end of the chord progression which starts by the chord C7.

With the Gm7 Key is F maj.

It says C7 is V/V.

How?

The final key is Bb, because this is a string of ii-V pairs, going round the circle:

Am7 - D7 = ii-V in G
Dm7 - G7 = ii-V in C
Gm7 - C7 = ii-V in F
Cm7 - F7 = ii-V in Bb

D7, G7 and C7 are all V/V of the next key.

There must be a half dozen names for cycling 5ths. Alternate 5ths is the IN name for it today. The II V turn around is just the 5th of the 5th. You can do as many 5th of the 5ths as you want. Eventually, you'll realize it's just the Cycle of 5ths.
