Detente is an album by the American jazz fusion group, the Brecker Brothers. It was released by Arista Records in 1980. The last track, "I Don't Know Either", has solos from both of the Brecker Brothers, and displays the level of skill that many jazz outfits simply didn't possess".

Detente finds them during a time when jazz playing was starting to get more lucrative. Keyboardist and producer George Duke was behind the boards for Detente. Although the Brecker Brothers and Duke are probably mainstays in any jazz fusion collection, their styles aren't analogous. Some of the tracks here clearly prove that point. You Ga (Ta Give It)" and "Not Tonight" both come off as a little too radio-friendly. Not surprisingly, the best cuts here have both the classic intelligent Brecker Brothers sound as well as George Duke's production prowess.
