John Coltrane in Jeep Grand Cherokee Ads

Return to search



In the early 1990's Jeep launched an advertising campaign for the Jeep Grand Cherokee that featured images and videos of John Coltrane. The TV ad featured here juxtaposes video clips of Coltrane  with those of the Jeep Grand Cherokee while "Niama" plays in the background.

I have found multiple print advertisements that feature photos of Coltrane as well as the embeded video here. If you have any more informtion on this advertisting campaign please let me know!
