Le Grand Partir is an alternative jazz band from Brussels and Lille. Assembled by drummer Théo Lanau, prolific and eclectic musician, the band ventures between the genres, inspired by different streams such as post rock, free improvisation and no wave. With guitarists Benjamin Sauzereau and Léo Rathier, and saxophonist and clarinetist Sam Comerford, Le Grand Partir performs instrumentals whose interpretation is different every time. Some kind of jazz influenced by Gastr del Sol, Alasnoaxis, the Lounge Lizards, Horse Lords or Earth, focusing more on ensemble textures and narration, rather than featured solos.
