Dutch magazine ad from 1939; connecting jazz, modern and American.
Not only is the cigarette brand presented as modern, it's a "modern American" cigarette. Stressing the fact that this is an imported cigarette is quite unusual in the 1930s in the Netherlands as only a few years earlier (1933) a government funded campaign was launched to promote buying Dutch products.
More about the connection between jazz and smoking later, for now I just want to share the picture, which I think is quite striking in it's use of colour.

P.S. I cannot find any information about this particular brand - any and all information is welcome.
