Don Pullen was originally from Roanoke, Virginia where he took classical piano lessons and accompanied his church choir. His first exposure to jazz piano was that of his cousin Clyde "Fats" Wright.

A medical student at North Carolinaís Johnson C. Smith University, he left soon after, deciding instead to pursue music and, began playing locally with jazz musicians.

In 1973 he joined Charles Mingus' band and remained for two years during which he appeared on the three albums "Mingus Moves", and "Changes One" and "Two."

Donís piano playing was so varied that some say it was hard to classify his style. He played mostly with bass and drums as accompaniment.
