He was born near Tampa Bay, Florida. His father, Donato Plumeri (aka, "Don Palmer"), was a theatrical agent based in Trenton, New Jersey who left Plumeri's mother when he was an infant. His father was absent during all of his childhood and his mother was forced to work to support herself, so he was raised by his maternal grandmother.
He began playing the trumpet at age ten, and at age 15 took up the double-bass.
In the early 1970s, he toured with Roberta Flack and played bass on Flack's LP, "Chapter Two". Later, he produced and promoted his own music, most notability the jazz avant-garde recordings, "He Who Lives in Many Places" (1971) and "Water Garden" (1978) (formerly titled "Ongoing").
