Alfred JaŽll studied under Carl Czerny and made his first public appearances when he was only eleven years old. He appeared at the Teatro San Benedetto in Venice in 1843. In 1844 he studied with Ignaz Moscheles in Vienna. He continued his studies in Brussels and Paris where he may have been a student of Chopin although there seems to be little evidence of this.

From 1851 to 1854 he successfully toured the USA. In 1851 he introduced Adeline Patti there to the public. His performances of the work of Louis Moreau Gottschalk helped to establish Gottschalk's reputation. In 1855 he became court pianist in Hanover.

He married the French pianist pianist Marie Trautmann in 1866. They toured in Europe together. In 1882 he suddenly died in Paris, aged only 49. His compositions were soon forgotten.
