In 1998, he co-wrote & produced Brazilian phenom Badi Assad's Verve/PolyGram release entitled, Chameleon. The album climbed to #1 in Europe, also topping JAZZIZ magazine's Readers Poll: "Best Brazilian Albums of the Year."

Highlight performances with Assad included 1999's Lilith Fair and Farm Aid 2000. Jeff's association with the Assad family also spawned songwriting collaborations with guitar luminary Sergio Assad and two pieces on Badi's Verde album.
