The Trio of Doom was a short lived jazz fusion power trio formed from John McLaughlin on guitar, Jaco Pastorius on bass and Tony Williams on drums.

In 1979, McLaughlin, Pastorius and Williams travelled to Havanamarker, Cubamarker, to participate in the historic Havana Jam festival that took place between 2-4 March, alongside Rita Coolidge, Kris Kristofferson, Stephen Stills, the CBS Jazz All-Stars, Fania All-Stars, Billy Swan, Bonnie Bramlett, Mike Finnegan, Weather Report, and Billy Joel, plus an array of Cuban artists such as Irakere, Pacho Alonso, Tata Güines and Orquesta Aragón.

Their only live performance was on March 3, 1979, and it is captured on Ernesto Juan Castellanos's documentary Havana Jam '79.

Later on March 8, 1979, the group recorded the songs they had written for the festival at Columbia Studios, New York, on 52nd St.
