A superior trumpeter, Jeff Beal is most notable for his advanced writing abilities. While studying at the Eastman School of Music, Beal won 11 Downbeat student awards. He also received three Exxon/Meet the Composer Grants during 1986-1987. Beal moved to New York after graduating, recorded his debut Liberation for Antilles, and then moved to the West Coast to work on film scores. He went on to record a second date for Antilles (Perpetual Motion) and three sets for Triloka. Beal’s writing has been featured on albums by Spyro Gyra, Dave Samuels, and John Patitucci, but he has not neglected his unpredictable trumpet playing, gigging often in the Los Angeles area where he also continues to write film scores.(Source: All Music Guide)

“The melodies that he wrote for this soundtrack are quite dark and eerie — in fact, they are downright creepy. No one will accuse Vrenna‘s Alice score of being bright and cheerful. They will, however, acknowledge that the CD is extremely memorable and well-executed; Vrenna obviously put a lot of thought into these melodies. One need not be a fan of video games to be impressed by this soundtrack and feel that it is among Vrenna‘s finest accomplishments.” (Source: All Music Guide)
