The brecker brothers you ga ta give it

Detente is an album by the American jazz fusion group, the Brecker Brothers. It was released by Arista Records in 1980.



AllMusic awarded the album with 3 stars and its review by Jason Elias states: "Dream Theme", arranged by Michael Brecker, is the album's best song, reflective yet not melancholy, with his saxophone felt and flawless throughout. 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".
