The Tony Williams Lifetime was founded in 1969 as a power trio with John McLaughlin on electric guitar, and Larry Young (. Khalid Yasin) on organ. The band was possibly named for Williams' debut album as a bandleader, Life Time, released on Blue Note in 1964. Its debut album was Emergency!, a double album released on Polydor/PolyGram Records in 1969. It was largely rejected by jazz listeners at the time of its release because of its heavy rock influences, but it is now looked upon as a fusion classic.

Their only live performance was on March 3, 1979, and it is recorded on Ernesto Juan Castellanos's documentary Havana Jam '79.
The better of the two albums the Tony Williams Lifetime recorded in 1970, Turn It Over, is a far more focused and powerful album than the loose, experimental Ego, and one of the more intense pieces of early jazz-rock fusion around.

Vuonna 1969 Williams muodosti trion nimeltä The Tony Williams Lifetime. Siinä oli kitaristina John McLaughlin ja uruissa Larry Young. Yhtye kuului fuusio-musiikin pioneereihin, ja sen musiikkia voidaan kutsua "jazz-rockiksi". Yhtyeen ensimmäinen levy, Emergency!, on noussut klassikon asemaan. Tämä trio hajosi pian McLaughlinin muodostettua oman yhtyeensä. 1970-luvulla Williams työskenteli esimerkiksi kitaristi Allan Holdsworthin kanssa, ja osallistui Hancockin kokoamaan kvintettiin, joka muistutti Davisin 1960-luvun kvintettiä Freddie Hubbardin korvatessa kuitenkin itse Davisin.
