Trio Beyond is an avant-jazz fusion organ trio, formed in 2003.

The trio was formed by drummer Jack DeJohnette and guitarist John Scofield, after conversations between the pair about how important Tony Williams was for them in that he provided musical influence as drummer and bandleader. Organist Larry Goldings, another admirer of Williams' uncanny sense of time and rhythmic pulse, was invited to join Scofield and DeJohnette to form the trio that pays tribute to The Tony Williams Lifetime band of the 1970s.

The trio have performed many concerts since their formation. A concert from the Queen Elizabeth Hall at the 2004 London Jazz Festival was released in 2006 on ECM. The double disc album was named Saudades.
